18 U.S. Code § 2423 – Understanding What the Law Says Regarding the Transportation of Minors

If you want to be successful in your case, you need an attorney that has a firm grasp on the relevant laws. He or she will walk you through the information that is relevant in your case, equipping you to make wise decisions that will positively impact your future. Transportation of minors is a complicated charge, because there are several different variations of the crime. The first is transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity. This crime involves an individual knowingly transporting a minor in any U.S. territory with the intent that the child will engage in prostitution or any other sexual activity that is considered a criminal offense. The second is travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. This is when a person travels in the United States, or a United States citizen travels in foreign commerce, and engages in any illicit sexual conduct with another person. You can also be charged for attempt and conspiracy or facilitation of the travel of someone engaging in illicit sexual conduct. Illicit sexual conduct is a sexual act with an individual under the age of 18. The legal definition also includes commercial sex acts and production of child pornography.

The Penalties for Transportation of Minors

Because transportation of minor charges cover a variety of crimes, the details of your unique case will have a significant impact on your punishment. Potential penalties may include fines, jail time, or both. You’ll need a seasoned defense attorney representing you if you want to receive a favorable outcome in your case. Crimes involving minors are serious, and the United States punishes the guilty harshly. If you’re facing accusations, connect with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your future.

If you’re involved in transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, you may face a fine and prison for a minimum of 10 years. If you’re charged with travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, you could potentially be punished with a fine, prison for not more than 30 years, or both. If you knowingly aid the travel of an individual engaged in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places, you might face a fine, imprisonment for not more than 30 years, or both.
