U.S. Legal Remedies for Minor Victims of Sex Tourism and Sex Trafficking

Human Trafficking Legal Center and Ropes and Gray LLP legal guide

This guide focuses on legal remedies in the United States for crimes committed internationally. The appendices list prosecutions and civil cases brought against U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents for sexual abuse of children abroad. The defendants have included missionaries, Peace Corps volunteers, orphanage workers, aid workers, government contractors, and medical personnel.  In some instances, the law used to prosecute these cases, the PROTECT Act, can also be used to prosecute perpetrators who commit these crimes on U.S. soil.
