Sex Trafficking Children Laws in the United States

According to federal law, sex trafficking of children or by force, fraud, or coercion is a serious felony that can lead to fines, jail time, sex offender registration, and other harsh penalties. If you are wrongfully convicted of sex trafficking, you could lose your freedom for the rest of your life.

According to Section 1591 of the U.S. Code, it is illegal to recruit, entice, harbor, transport, provide, obtain, advertise, maintain, patronize, or solicit a person in affecting interstate of foreign commerce, or within the special jurisdiction of the United States. It is also illegal to benefit from someone else performing these actions. In order to be charged with the enhanced penalties under this section rather than other trafficking offenses, you must utilize force, threats, fraud, or coercion, or be involved in an offense with an alleged victim under the age of 18.

What this means is if you are accused of being at all involved in a sex trafficking offense, you can face the same serious penalties as the perpetrator. Even if you know you are innocent, it is critical that you take these charges very seriously and get in touch with a skilled defense lawyer as soon as possible. We know what it takes to win and will do everything we can to protect you.

Criminal Penalties for Sex Trafficking Children or by Force/Fraud/Coercion

If you are convicted of sex trafficking under this section of the law, you can face serious penalties. If the alleged victim is under 14, you could face up to life behind bars, with a minimum of 15 years. If the victim is under 18, you could face 10 years to life behind bars. Interfering with the enforcement of these laws can lead to up to 20 years behind bars. Additionally, fines, sex offender registration, and other penalties are always on the line for federal sex crime offenses.
