Do Not Hesitate To Address Human Sex Trafficking Allegations
Many types of crimes fall under the term “human sex trafficking,” and they may be prosecuted in both state and federal courts. You may be charged with human sex trafficking if you engage in certain kinds of sexual activity or benefit in any way from the sexual activity. You may even be charged with human sex trafficking for transporting a prostitute to a location to engage in illegal sexual activity.
Assisting in ownership or management of a business that profits from illegal intercourse is often a basis for human sex trafficking charges. Clubs, massage parlors, spas and brothels are typically involved, meaning that management or owners can also be charged with money laundering. If you are facing allegations of housing or controlling an organization that offered sex for a fee, then it is important to contact our sex trafficking defense attorneys immediately.
A sex trafficking conviction can result in serious felony charges including a minimum of five years in prison and a maximum of 20 years. Consequences are even more severe if the person involved is a minor. Because there is no statute of limitations on federal human trafficking offenses, charges can be brought against you even years later. If you are convicted of a sex crime charge, then you must also register as a sex offender in the state of Massachusetts.
Focus On Criminal Investigations Early In The Process
State and federal agencies have been concentrating their efforts on human sex trafficking investigations in the past few years. Police officers scour websites such as Craigslist and Backpage for suspicious activity. They set up sting operations to catch “Johns” and businesses offering sexual services.
