Super Bowl People Trafficking and Prostitution

Posted By Criminal Law Standard || 17-Nov-2010

Super Bowl XLV will be at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington on February 6, 2011.  The event promises to generate millions of dollars in revenue for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.  Unfortunately, the Super Bowl will also brings sex traffickers to the metroplex who will bring hundreds, if not thousands, of people to the area to work in the sex trade.  The Super Bowl is generally regarded as the most prolific sex trafficking event in the United States.  

The Texas Human Trafficking Prevention Task Force met at Arlington City Hall today to discuss ways to fight sex trafficking during Super Bowl week.  Gregg Abbott, the Texas State Attorney General, announced today that the State will send twelve staff members to the Arlington area to help local officials crack down on prostitution and other sex trafficking activities during Super Bowl week.  The Texas AG's office is coordinating with Arlington law enforcement and local victims advocacy groups to fight sex trafficking activities related to the Super Bowl.   

Approximately 10,000 people a year are trafficked through Texas each year, which makes Texas one of the worst states for human trafficking.  Although exact statistics are not available, it is estimated that tens of thousands of people were trafficked through recent Super Bowl host cities.  

Local law enforcement agencies will employ police officers in under cover operations to identify and arrest those persons engaging in prostitution and/or people trafficking.  In Texas, anyone who offers or agrees to enter into a sexual act for a fee may be charged with prostitution.  

Dallas criminal attorney Tom D'Amore has limited his practice to criminal cases throughout his entire 23-year career.  When Tom worked for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, he worked closely with Dallas area under cover officers in cases related to, among other things, prostitution and drug cases.
