CASPER, Wyo. — A report from the Human Trafficking Institute reporting cases in all states and U.S. territories says that Wyoming had no cases in 2020.

According to a release from the Human Trafficking Institute, the report says Wyoming had “zero new human trafficking cases” filed in federal courts, zero convicted defendants, and zero active defendants.

“So zero percent of active defendants were charged with sex trafficking, and zero percent were charged with forced labor,” said the HTI in the release.

“Federal courts have never ordered a convicted Wyoming human trafficking defendant to pay restitution, and 2015 was the only year in which a Wyoming trafficking defendant was convicted,” they said.
