Human Trafficking Sexual Servitude

Concerning human trafficking for sexual servitude.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

The bill amends the language defining the crime of human trafficking for sexual servitude to include that a person who knowingly advertises, offers to sell, or sells travel services that facilitate activities defined as human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude commits the offense of human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude. 'Travel services' are defined in the bill. Current law requires a person convicted of human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude to be placed on the Colorado sex offender registry; the bill extends that requirement to persons convicted of human trafficking of any person of any age. The bill adds a provision to law allowing a person who was convicted of human trafficking for sexual servitude to petition the court to discontinue the person's duty to register on the sexual offender registry if he or she can establish, by a preponderance of the evidence, that at the time he or she committed the offense, he or she had been trafficked by another person for the purpose of committing the offense.
