COERCION OF INVOLUNTARY SERVITUDE

Coercion of involuntary servitude is a very serious charge, and requires nothing less than an experienced and accomplished Denver defense attorney to defend against it.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with coercion of involuntary servitude if an individual coerces another person to perform labor or services by: withholding or threatening to destroy documents relating to a person’s immigration status; or, threatening to notify law enforcement officials that a person is present in the United States in violation of federal immigration laws; or, threatening serious harm or physical restraint against that person or another person; or, by means of a scheme, plan, or pattern intended to cause the person to believe that, if the person does not perform the labor or services, he or she or another person would suffer serious harm or physical restraint; or, abusing or threatening abuse of law or the legal process.

An individual can commit coercion of involuntary servitude regardless of whether the individual provides compensation to the person who is coerced.

Coercion of involuntary servitude is a class 6 felony.
