Human Trafficking

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, human trafficking is the second fastest growing crime in the United States. Rob has worked with other legislators to pass laws to address these crimes.  In addition, he has patroned laws that:

  • Increase penalties for those who place children into prostitution (HB 2040 –2015)
  • Put offenders who hire child prostitutes on the sex offender registry (HB 235 –2014)
  • Allow grand juries in multiple jurisdictions to investigate the same human trafficking cases because such crimes often stretch across city and county lines (HB 1870 – 2013)
