If you've been convicted of human trafficking violations, you're facing heavy fines and penalties. New laws passed by former Governor Spitzer in New York make sex trafficking and labor trafficking separate felonies. A conviction of sex trafficking cam carry a penalty of anywhere from 3 to 25 years in prison. A labor trafficking conviction, also a felony, could bring 3 to 7 years in prison. Child trafficking also carries serious consequences, including decades in prison and potentially a listing on sex offender registries if the charges include sexual misconduct. Law enforcement was even given greater powers in order to investigate those accused of human trafficking. The penalties for human trafficking are more serious than ever, and only a skilled criminal defense attorney can help you navigate human trafficking laws, investigations, trials and appeals.
