County adopts resolution addressing sex trafficking

In Child Sex Trafficking, Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on December 20, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Accepting that truth was demonstrated this past Tuesday when the Redwood County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution that urges the state legislature to amend what is known as the Safe Harbor Act in Minnesota.
That resolution would redefine all children under the age of 18 who have been involved in sex-trafficking as victims, not as juvenile offenders.
While Redwood County has not recently charged any sex trafficking crimes, Steven Collins, Redwood County attorney said the action to adopt this resolution is a step in the right direction, because it is sending a different message to those who truly are victims.
