    One correction – under current Iowa law, Human Trafficking, (Iowa Code Chapter 710A) is a felony offense and can be charged at the level of a class C or class B felony depending on certain factors.

    Also 710A contains an “affirmative defense” provision that can be employed to address criminal acts performed by the victim under the duress of the trafficker.
