U.S. Attorney’s office says human trafficking cases will be prosecuted to highest extent possible

A federal prosecutor in Rochester is calling for more attention to be placed on an issue that’s rising across the U.S.

Earlier this week, U.S. Attorney James Kennedy released a new public service announcement to call attention to human trafficking.

“We’ve seen such a rise in these human trafficking cases and as the Sheriff mentioned the whole paradigm has shifted in terms of the manner in which we view these what we now, who we now view as victims, we looked at people who were committing crimes earlier,” Kennedy said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office is promising to prosecute these cases to the highest extent of the law.
