He just made the trade deadline.  Word is he traded Candi with an "i" dotted with a smileyface for a Filipina mail-order bride, Aamina the rookie shoe-making tot, and two slaves to be named.

It is when you are trying to buy the escort as opposed to just renting

If she is under 18 yup, a lot of states have made this law to crack down on early teens being forced into prostitution.

/Underage prostitution is a pretty big issue in Atlanta.

He should rent, the depreciation on those things is ridiculous.

If the escort has been trafficked then yes you can be charged with human trafficking for buying some time with them. But usually only the biggest of asshole prosecutors will try to charge a John with human trafficking in situations like this.

However here they claim that this guy knew that the prostitute would be under age and trafficked, so it seems appropriate. Unless of course they are using the line of thinking that since she was a prostitute that he should have suspected that she would be underage and trafficked. If this is the case then go back and see what I said about asshole prosecutors.

Not true.  The word "obtain" is just legalese.  You are obtaining them for a purpose, not permanently.  Catch-and-release, kind-of.  The trafficking part of it is that you are arranging to meet them somewhere that involves transportation.

Actually, this is typical of today's look-how-big-my-dck-is prosecutor.  He overcharges, threatens you with 100+ years of jail, and gets you to plea-bargain down to what you should have been charged with in the first place.  This keeps him from having to defend his case in court.  Pussies.

This! Cops are starting to get creative in their pushing around ordinary people.

Meanwhile, the Koch brothers just got in a shipment of ten preteen girls shipped in by air. But it's legal cuz they're rich, you know.

I spent a few years as a sports writer before I left for my current field. I found out a couple of years after I'd left the area that my former sports editor had been arrested for soliciting sex with a minor on the internet. I shouldn't have been surprised since his favorite sport to cover was field hockey. He'd let us handle football, baseball, basketball, hockey, etc. But field hockey was his baby. Sick fark.

huh? is that case than wouldn't 99% of John be charged with human trafficking as well?
What about 'real' human trafickers? you know the ones who actually kidnap the girls from Eastern Europe, Columbia etc imprisoned them and sell them to other pimps?

Those people may exist. In the sense that unicorns exist and are used extensively in their smuggling operations for their anti radar fur. In the meantime, law enforcement always needs a new boogieman. So maybe you should choose incall when you order your "massage" else someone mistake you for a Columbian slavemaster.

IANAL but I believe this is when the prostitute is above legal age of consent in the state (so no kiddie rape) but under 18. I could be wrong, though.

It is like when they call all drugs narcotics, even when they have no opiates in them.  The law is full of stupid redefinitions of the english language.

Maybe there are certain threads where that acronym shouldn't be used. For instance, ones about underage trafficking. Just a thought.

This is not related to the story, exactly.

I know a sports writer.  He happens to work for a rather high profile company, so I will keep the company and his name out of it.

But...  If you were to judge his writing by the nonsense that he blasts out on Facebook on a daily basis, you would think he was nothing more than a high school kid with no writing ability whatsoever.
I honestly can't believe he's actually employed as a writer.
