Federal vs. State Sex Offenses

Sex offenses can be prosecuted by the state of Minnesota or the federal government. Federal sex charges typically involve more serious or complex crimes, or crimes that involved crossing state borders. Sex crimes that are often charged as federal offenses include:

  • Illegal pornography involving children
  • Human trafficking or trafficking for pornography
  • "Sex tourism," where an individual travels abroad to engage in a sex act that is illegal in the U.S.
  • Kidnapping for the purpose of committing a sex crime

The penalties that are imposed by the federal court tend to be far more severe than those imposed by Minnesota state courts. Convictions for sex offenses will lead to mandatory minimum prison sentences.

The federal government has an extremely high conviction rate. If you are under investigation for a federal sex offense, call us as soon as possible so we can get started on your defense: 612-424-9454.

Human Trafficking Charges: Begin Building Your Defense Now

Human trafficking, also known as trafficking in persons, is one of the most severe federal criminal offenses you can face. Human trafficking is defined by law as the illegal trade of human beings for forced labor or sexual exploitation, and it is considered a crime against humanity ( 22 USC § 7102 (9-10)).

A conviction for human trafficking will result in a significant federal prison sentence. The penalties for this crime are among the most severe in the U.S. criminal justice system.

When facing a human trafficking investigation or charge, you need an experienced and aggressive federal criminal defense attorney. Law enforcement officers have great resources at their disposal to investigate human trafficking and prosecutors will vigorously pursue a conviction against what they see as modern day slavery.
