Sex crimes defense to charges involving trafficking of minors


Many of our New Jersey readers may have heard terms like "human trafficking" in media reports concerning individuals involved in the sex crimes trade, specifically those involving sex offenses against children. Some of these operations are international in scale, while others are more local. Either way, anyone who is alleged to have been involved in sex crimes trafficking is going to need to put together a strong criminal defense strategy.

When the alleged crime involves the trafficking of minors for the purposes of prostitution, or even sexual enslavement, the defendant will be facing an extremely aggressive prosecution effort. When this is the case, it only makes sense to put together an equally aggressive defense effort.

However, some of our readers may be wondering, what exactly could a defendant in this type of situation do to defend themselves? After all, a prosecutor probably would not pursue a case like this without very solid information and evidence, right?

Well, this may be the case sometimes, but many times a defendant may have played only a limited role in an alleged human trafficking operation. Or, the person may not have even been aware that they were part of an illegal operation. If this is the case, there could be a chance that charges could be reduced, or dropped altogether.

The only way this can happen, however, is to have a criminal defense approach that is looking at every option. To learn more about how our firm approaches these types of criminal cases, please . This could help the defendant better understand the situation, legal rights afforded to them and how they could use available evidence and their criminal record to make a plea bargain or initiate a defense that could reduce or dismiss the charges against them.
