Intersection Between Human Trafficking, Domestic Violence Focus of Podcast Episode

December 4, 2019

The Tennessee Court Talk podcast recently hosted several of the state’s leading experts on the intersection between human trafficking and domestic violence.  While many think of human trafficking in terms of victims being “taken” or “snatched” and sold, the reality is most victims are trafficked by people they know, including significant others and parents.  Learn the patterns of coercion and abuse, how these victims often present in domestic violence cases, and what judges, law enforcement, nonprofits, and others can do to help. Guests include Judge Ana Esobar, who oversees the Nashville Human Trafficking Intervention Court; Judge Robert Philyaw, who presides over juvenile court in Chattanooga; Davidson County Assistant District Attorney Sarah Wolfson, who specializes in human trafficking cases; and Jerry Redman, executive director of Street Grace in Chattanooga.

Tennessee Court Talk is an educational podcast from the Tennessee Supreme Court and the Administrative Office of the Courts, bringing together the very best law experts to discuss topics affecting judges, attorneys, law students, and the people of Tennessee.
