DA to crack down on sex, labor trafficking
District Attorney Melinda Katz announced the creation of a Human Trafficking Bureau on Monday.
The bureau will combat sex and labor trafficking by prosecuting traffickers and buyers of sex and will connect survivors of trafficking with services to help escape…. Jessica Melton, who was awarded the Thomas E. Dewey medal by the New York City Bar Association for her work in combating human trafficking in 2013, is the chief of the bureau.
