Sexual exploitation is the sexual abuse of a minor through the exchange of sex or sexual acts for drugs, food, shelter, protection, or money. Sexual exploitation includes involving children in creating pornography and sexually explicit websites, using a minor for child prostitution, and involving a child in both national and international sex trades.
Exploitation is a serious sex offense, and violators will have a difficult time at court. Prosecutors, judges, and juries have little tolerance for sex offenders who involve children in sexual criminal acts and will be very tough on defendants facing exploitation charges. Your Lynnwood exploitation defense attorney will be a very important part of your case and will work hard to combat prosecutors who are shooting for a conviction.
Not only can children be exploited for sexual purposes, but adults can be victims in exploitation cases as well. Human trafficking has become a big problem throughout the United States because people are being imported into the country and sold to others for sexual purposes at an alarming rate. Federal agencies are aware of this and have enacted investigations to root out instances of human trafficking and exploitation with the purpose of convicting violators of this sex offense.
