Human traffickers assert force, fraud, and coercion against victims in order to profit from commercial sex or forced labor or services. Offenders use a variety of tactics designed to ensure that victims will do what they are told without resistance, questioning, or disclosure to law enforcement. This physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual control too often allows traffickers to escape accountability.
This two-part presentation is designed to improve human trafficking responses by better investigating and prosecute traffickers while ensuring that victims are not inappropriately charged with crimes they are forced to commit. The presenters will discuss strategies on how to make trauma-informed assessments of culpability and how to use experts to educate allied professions, judges, and jurors about the complexities of trafficking dynamics.
This webinar will help attendees to: • Determine factors that impact culpability • Analyze culpability through a trauma-informed lens • Collaborate with experts to design appropriate dispositions based on an individual’s level of culpability and educate judges and jurors about trafficking dynamics
Human trafficking investigations often ensnare all parties involved. The prosecutor's responsibility is to examine each party and assess their culpability in the conduct. Many times this analysis includes the survivor-offender, also referred to as the bottom. Through this training, prosecutors are equipped with tools (including the use of experts) to better understand survivor-offender dynamics when determining the best outcome while seeking justice in their human trafficking prosecutions.
