Skilled Defense to Fight Serious Charges

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. The potential conviction penalties for this offense are substantial and include not only lengthy prison sentences but also hefty fines. If you've been accused of human trafficking, speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. The prosecutor will be busy gathering evidence to build their case against you, which means you need someone who will diligently examine the facts of your circumstances from the beginning.

She believes in the presumption of innocence and knows that there are two sides to every story. To that end, she will be an aggressive advocate in your corner, ensuring your rights are protected and seeking a favorable outcome on your behalf.

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.

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.
