Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon has signed a bill increasing the penalties for subsequent human trafficking penalties into law.

You can read HB 10 here.

Among other things, it provides for penalties of 25 years in prison without the chance of parole for subsequent human trafficking convictions. Wyoming law already provided for the penalty in cases where the victim was a minor.

In some cases, people can be sentenced up to 50 years in prison for subsequent human trafficking convictions.

The bill was one of 13 that the governor signed into law on Thursday.
