A Milwaukee father and son were recently arrested for alleged sex trafficking. The two men face 11 federal charges that could lead to life in prison. According to police, the conspiracy began when the son introduced his girlfriend to his father. The girl was allegedly forced into work at a strip club and prostitution. Police further allege the two men tried to force a 16-year-old into prostitution, while the son is also charged with trafficking two juveniles and three women as prostitutes over several years. Investigators are buttressing their case with a letter the father wrote from prison to his son allegedly discussing how to run the enterprise.
A Milwaukee man was sentenced earlier this week for a conviction of soliciting and enticing a child for prostitution and one other charge.

When a person in Milwaukee is arrested for a sex crime, they might not realize that a conviction of a crime that is considered sexual may result in the person needing to register as a sexual offender.

When someone is accused of a serious crime, they could face years in prison if they are convicted. Years in prison can harm a person's reputation and make it difficult for them to find gainful employment and reintegrate into their community. This is especially detrimental to a person's emotional wellbeing when they are wrongfully convicted, which is why it is so important that evidence presented in a case is reliable.
