Statute

Wyo. Stat. Ann. 6-2-708

In Wyoming, survivors of human trafficking can seek to vacate a conviction for any offense after if it is imposed. To vacate a conviction, the court must find that the survivor’s participation in the offense was the result of having been a victim. This is part of the same commendable law that makes clear that “a victim of human trafficking is not criminally liable for any commercial sex act or other criminal acts committed as a direct result of, or incident to, being a victim of human trafficking.”
