New Human Trafficking Bill

Apr 9, 2013

Democratic State Representative Teresa Fedor is proposing a bill that makes 11 different changes to state law that she says will make it easier to catch and prosecute those who are guilty of human trafficking.

She says as state law has cracked down on these criminals, police and prosecutors find there are some specific changes that need to be made to keep up with offenders.

Fedor’s bill would, among other things, extend statute of limitations for trafficking to 20 years. It would also crack down on electronic means of perpetuating human trafficking.
