Protections for Minor Human Trafficking Victims

Concerning protections for minor human trafficking victims, and, in connection therewith, requiring a post-enactment review of the implementation of this act.
 

SUPPORT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 DESCRIPTION:

The bill clarifies definitions in the “Colorado Children’s Code”
concerning victims of human trafficking of a minor for involuntary
servitude and for sexual servitude.

The bill creates immunity for a violation of a prostitution-related
offense if probable cause exists to believe that a minor was a victim of
either human trafficking of a minor for involuntary servitude or for sexual
servitude.


The bill establishes an affirmative defense for all criminal
violations, except class 1 felonies, if a minor proves that he or she was:


! A victim of human trafficking of a minor for involuntary
servitude or sexual servitude; and


! Forced or coerced into engaging in the criminal acts.


The bill also requires a minor who engages in prostitution-related
conduct to be referred to the county department of human or social
services or the child abuse and that if a law enforcement officer
encounters such a minor and there is probable cause to believe that the minor was a victim of human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude, the officer shall report the suspected violation to the county department of human or social services or the child abuse hotline.
