U.S. v. Lin (9th Cir. - Nov. 14, 2016)

I'm not certain whether the plethora of sex trafficking opinions that I read coming out of the Northern Mariana Islands reflects the relative prevalence of sex trafficking there, a prosecutorial priority in that area, or mere selection for publication of such cases.  Perhaps a combination of the above.

Regardless, today sees yet yet another case from the CNMI that involves an incredibly lengthy (nearly 20 years) sentence for sex trafficking in the CNMI.

You'd think that people would get the message by now, right?
