Definition of Human Trafficking
According to the Florida Statutes Chapter 787.06, human trafficking is defined as "Transporting, soliciting, recruiting, harboring, providing, or obtaining another person for transport." This is basically modern day slavery which is often done for sexual purposes. When done for sexual purposes, it becomes a sex crime. If a child is or has been transported for sexual purposes, then additional charges can be brought against you, including child abuse charges.
