Inequitable Jeopardy: Exploring the Criminality and Culpability of Child Sex Trafficking Victims

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

While the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and its reauthorizations in 2003, 2005, and 2008 safeguard prostituted minors under the age of 18 as vulnerable victims of child sex trafficking unable to legally consent to being trafficked, local systems continue to treat them as criminals. In such instances, the prostitution of a minor is categorized as a public nuisance crime by local law enforcement and juvenile justice agencies and the minor is arrested and adjudicated on prostitution charges. A review of the historical, neurological, and developmental vulnerabilities typical of child sex trafficking victims suggests that these vulnerabilities may compromise victims’ ability to exercise control regarding their choices or escape from a trafficker. Shielding victims from legal culpability for the criminal conduct of their sex traffickers is needed for child sex trafficking victims, whether they are detained by federal or local law enforcement.
