Identifying the Victims of Human Trafficking. Journal of the National District Attorneys Association Prosecutor read online review & book description:

ONE OF THE COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS of trafficking is that it involves only foreign born victims crossing international borders into the United States. Human trafficking, as defined in federal statutes (2) and in most state statutes, involves the commercial sexual exploitation of a victim if that victim is under 18 years old or if fraud, force or coercion are used for a victim of any age. With recent studies suggesting that between one and one and a half million children are runaway/thrown away each year (and recognition that many of these children will be vulnerable to sexual exploitation), the reality of human trafficking in each of our communities is unavoidable. Given the resource intensive nature of many trafficking cases, collaboration is a key factor in successful investigation and prosecution of these cases. Trafficking victims deserve justice. Only by committing resources to these cases, can we begin the outreach needed to bring justice to these victims and bring an end to the trafficking of our children's bodies. Honing an effective criminal justice response at the state and local levels to cases involving the trafficking of domestic victims for commercial sexual exploitation requires an understanding of the differences between these cases and the equally troubling cases involving the trafficking of foreign born victims brought into the country for sexual exploitation, labor, debt bondage, peonage or involuntary servitude.
