Human trafficking is an offense that occurs when a person uses some type of coercion or threat to force a person to engage in specific conduct against their will.

What Is Human Trafficking?

California law defines human trafficking as one person compelling another to perform forced services or commercial sex acts.

According to California Penal Code 236.1 PC, a person commits a human trafficking offense if they:

  • Deprive someone of their liberties to make them perform labor or services
  • Deprive someone of their liberties to force them to engage in sexual conduct
  • Persuade a person under 18 years of age to take part in a commercial sex act

Under the law, a person coerces someone else when they use threats to make that individual believe that if they don't complete the forced act, they or another person will be seriously harmed or restrained.

It's important to note that, although trafficking is generally associated with moving someone across state lines or country borders, this is not an element of the offense. A person could be charged and found guilty of this crime even if they never moved the alleged victim from one place to another.

Will a Human Trafficking Conviction Lead to Prison Time?

Human trafficking offenses are taken very seriously, and a conviction may result in incarceration. Depending on the circumstances, the potential penalties could include up to life in prison. Additionally, the judge could impose a fine of up to $500,000 on the person convicted.
