Sex and Human Trafficking
Sex Trafficking and Human Trafficking Defense Attorneys
What used to simply be referred to as promotion of prostitution or sharing of profits from prostitution activities has recently been re-branded as “sex trafficking” or “human trafficking” by politicians, law enforcement and the media. This new label coincides with a crack-down on these types of offenses which includes increased enforcement efforts and sting operations.
Sex trafficking and human trafficking are serious felony level offenses that can be charged in either federal or state court and can carry hefty prison sentences if convicted. It is not necessary to be a kingpin or part of a large ring conducting prostitution activities to be ensnared in a sex trafficking or human trafficking case. Simply aiding one person in prostitution in prostitution or sharing in one person’s profits from their prostitution activities can potentially lead to that person being charged with a sex trafficking offense.
An aggressive defense to charges of this nature is absolutely necessary in light of what’s at stake and the increased scrutiny placed on such allegations by prosecutors and the media. The attorneys at The Law Office of John J. Leunig work tirelessly to zealously defend people facing such charges and have had vast success fighting on behalf of those facing prostitution related crimes. You need an intelligent attorney on your side to find the flaws in the prosecution’s case and craft a strong defense strategy to put into action.
If law enforcement is alleging you were soliciting a prostitute or acting as a prostitute, The Law Office of John J. Leunig will diligently fight to preserve your rights, record and freedom in those cases as well.
