1. In 2016 WATCH completed its first Sex Trafficking Report which summarizes two and a half years of monitoring sex trafficking cases in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties. The report provides in-depth analysis of prosecutorial charging practices in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties, as well as a careful look at how the cases are being resolved, what the sentences are, and how the two counties compare in their handling of trafficking cases. The report includes specific recommendations for amending the sex trafficking statute, instituting a charging protocol for sex trafficking cases and re-thinking sentencing practices. WATCH will now work with legislators, prosecutors, law enforcement, and judges to make these recommendations come to fruition.
