The sexual tourism industry uses the channels and structure of the tourism industry to arrange trips with the primary purpose of providing sexual liaisons for their clients with destination residents. If you are facing a sex crime charge stemming from a sexual tourism arrest, get the counsel of an experienced sex crime lawyer immediately. There are several different types of sexual tourism, depending on the specific type of sex that has been arranged for the client. Some sexual tourism involves sex with an adult prostitute, while others may be for sex with a minor.
Sexual tourism may involve travel within the same country—domestic sexual tourism—or it can be out of the country, which would be international sexual tourism. The United States has very strict laws that hold any U.S. citizen accountable for traveling to another country to engage in sex with a minor. Many other countries have such laws as well. The “International Megan’s Law” provides officials with information about the comings and goings of known sex offenders.
