SD Governor Signs Ban On Human Trafficking
PIERRE, SD - South Dakota will have a new state law banning human trafficking Gov. Dennis Daugaard has signed a measure allowing the state to prosecute people for using force, fraud or coercion to make others engage in prostitution or involuntary servitude.
 
Supporters say state law already makes it illegal to engage in prostitution or pimping, but South Dakota also needs a law against human trafficking.

People convicted of human trafficking would face up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Those convicted of human trafficking involving kidnapping, prostitution, death or a victim younger than 16 could face up to 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
