JUVENILE IN JUSTICE POLICYMAKER PANEL:
How Kansas Human Trafficking Legislation Has Changed the Face of Juveniles in Justice
Juveniles constitute nearly half of those subjugated to domestic sex trafficking, creating a critical need to end the exploitation cycle. Kansas policymakers come together for a roundtable
conversation. How have victims of human trafficking been treated historically? How will new legislation improve the treatment of juveniles? What are the next steps in breaking the exploitation
cycle in Kansas?
Inspired by Wichita programs such as the Anti-Sexual Exploitation Roundtable for Community Action, Kansas bill SB61, which calls for training for law enforcement, treatment for juvenile trafficking
victims, and increased penalties for perpetrators, takes effect on January 1, 2014. A paradigm shift, this ambitious legislation becomes a step to end modern-day slavery.
Dr. Karen Countryman-Roswurm
Conversation moderator Dr. Karen Countryman-Roswurm is executive director of the Wichita State University Center for Combating Human Trafficking. Serving marginalized children and families for
nearly two decades, she has been recognized as the forerunner of the Kansas anti-trafficking movement.
District Attorney Marc Bennett has more than 15 years experience supervising the prosecution of sex crimes and human trafficking. He serves on numerous boards including the Wichita Area Sexual
Assault Center, Sedgwick County Child Advocacy Center, and the Kansas Attorney General’s Human Trafficking Advisory Board.
Timothy H. Henderson
Timothy H. Henderson is Presiding District Court Judge for the 18th Judicial District Juvenile Division in Sedgwick County. He has worked on legislation providing greater protection to children in
Kansas. Henderson has presented at the Governor’s conference on Child Abuse and the National Conference on Abuse and Neglect.
Derek Schmidt is the Kansas Attorney General. He has served as a state senator and worked with prominent Kansas leaders including Governor Bill Graves, U.S. Senator Nancy Landon Kassebaum, and U.S.
Senator Chuck Hagel. In 2010 he worked to establish the Human Trafficking Advisory Board.

FILM SCREENING: Kids for Cash
From four-minute trials to lengthy sentences for juvenile first offenders and minor offenses, Kids for Cash is a riveting look behind the notorious 2009 judicial scandal in Luzerne County,

privatization of government services run amok? What are the responsibilities of the community at large for those with little to no voice?

Juvie Justice in the 21st Century: The Cost of Confinement

closing with a group question and answer.
The United States holds more youth in detention facilities than any other country. With budget belts continuing to tighten as health and welfare costs increase, communities continue to define and
refine the role and goals of state-run juvenile facilities. In Sedgwick County, how are we building safer communities through effective correctional services? How does Sedgwick County compare with
the state and the nation in utilizing contemporary theories and practices?
