Human trafficking offenses have received much more attention in recent years, and the penalties for a conviction have become much more severe. Prosecutors are highly motivated to obtain convictions in these cases, and it is essential that you have a qualified federal criminal defense attorney representing you from the outset.
At Lynch & Pine, we represent Rhode Island and Massachusetts clients in a variety of federal human trafficking cases. We understand how federal prosecutors operate, and we know how to prepare a compelling defense strategy designed to protect your rights and freedom. We will diligently pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record.
Aggressive Defense Against Any Human Trafficking Charge
When you choose our firm, we will thoroughly investigate your case so that we can present the strongest possible defense on your behalf. Depending on the unique circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible to argue that the alleged victim was a willing participant or that you had no illegal intent. In some cases, we may be able to show that the search that uncovered the evidence against you was illegal.
We are prepared to defend you against charges involving any type of human trafficking, including:
- Transporting people across state lines for the purpose of prostitution or forced labor
- The sale of a person into a life of prostitution or forced labor
- Drug trafficking involving the use of “mules” to carry the drugs across the border
- Coordinating the entry of illegal foreign nationals into the United States
- Conspiring to commit any of the above crimes
