Just what is Human Trafficking? We heard about the case down in Moore County, NC which resulted in the Mother selling her daughter for prostitution.
From the Bureau of Justice, “Characteristics of Suspected Human Trafficking Incidents”, Human Trafficking has occurred if a person was induced to perform labor or a commerical sex act through force, fraud, or coercion. Any person under age 18 who performs a commercial sex act is considered a victim of human trafficking, regardless of whether force, fraud or coercion were present.
It is defined as, “The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for one of 3 purposes:
1) Labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purposes of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery
2) a Commercial sex act through the use of force, fraud or coercion
3) Any Commercial sex act, if the person is under 18 years of age, regardless of whether any form or coercion is involved.
