A Course of Exploitation: The Intersection of Stalking and Sex Trafficking


Topic: A Course of Exploitation: The Intersection of Stalking and Sex Trafficking

Hosted By: AEquitas

Description: When offenders engage in a course of conduct that includes sexual exploitation, they perpetrate dangerous and often misidentified and misunderstood crimes, including stalking and sex trafficking. Stalking behaviors are used to force or coerce individuals to engage in commercial sexual activities or to intimidate and prevent them from engaging with the criminal justice system. Presenters will explore the dynamics of stalking and sex trafficking. They will focus on the importance of understanding the context in which both crimes occur and the common tactics used by perpetrators. This presentation will provide strategies to improve the identification of these “course of conduct” crimes, increase offender accountability through successful investigations and prosecutions, and minimize further harm to victims and survivors by ensuring they are connected with meaningful services and tools to plan for their safety.
