During the 2020-2021 Douglass Fellowship, fellow Alicen Rodolph and HTI Special Counsel Tyler Dunman co-authored an article about recommended practices for prosecuting human trafficking cases when a survivor does not wish to participate. The article was recently published in the Criminal Law Bulletin. A survivor may not always want to assist in the prosecution of their trafficker for a variety of reasons related to their healing and safety. In the article, Tyler and Alicen present strategies for prosecutors to successfully proceed with trials of suspected traffickers without survivor testimony.
Each year our Douglass Fellows work with an HTI attorney to co-write a publishable piece of scholarship. Learn more about the Douglass Fellowship here.
