Sex trafficking of minors is a real and significant threat in our communities across the United States. Traffickers must be prosecuted and held accountable, and victims must be met with a trauma-informed approach. This presentation will provide investigators, prosecutors, probation officers, and victim advocates with insight into the culture and dynamics of domestic minor sex trafficking. These cases come with significant hurdles to overcome such as a lack of corroborating evidence or “compliant” victims. The presenter will incorporate case studies and real-life examples of trafficking prosecutions to provide the audience with a basic understanding of trafficking culture, terminology, and the unique circumstances involved in the trafficking of minors for sex.
