Modern Slavery Act influencing a sentence

A family who trafficked and enslaved two Hungarian women to force them into prostitution has been jailed and given Slavery and Trafficking Prevention Orders (STPOs) under the Modern Slavery Act.

The STPOs require the family, on release from prison, to report their addresses, details of mobile phones and bank accounts and casino registrations to police. They are also banned from advertising on adult websites or having anyone linked to the sex industry in their car or living with them and they must not carry any more than £200 cash. The orders remain in place until any further order is made.

STPOs are civil orders created by the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and are designed to prevent anyone who has been convicted of a slavery or trafficking offence from committing any similar offences in future.
