From: Department of Corrections

This is an initial (within 7 days) response to your public records request
which was received by the Wyoming Department of Corrections via email on
May 1, 2018.

You are requesting: 2012-2017 Incerations [sic] for prostitution,
pimping, forced slavery, sex trafficking and human trafficking.

Please clarify your request. Are you looking for aggregate or raw data?
Are you wanting to know the total number of felony convictions broken down
by the categories you listed? Or are you looking for specific information
such as the names of convicted felons who are in prison for those crimes?
Or are you looking for something else altogether?

I'm not certain if certain crimes like sex trafficking and human
trafficking are explicitly specified in Wyoming State Statutes. It's
possible that certain crimes might fall under broader categories. We can
potentially run a statute query in our inmate database, but if there's not
a specific statute tied to that offense then we wouldn't have a way to
identify all individuals who are convicted of that crime.

Your request will be considered once we receive additional information.

Thank you,

Mark

Mr. Horan,

Thank you for your response for clarification. I am looking for aggregate data
of incarcerations for categories related to offenses including prostitution, pimping, forced slavery, sex trafficking and human trafficking, solicitation, etc. Specifically, totals of each offense for each year between 2012-2017.
I am not requesting any information on specific individuals, such as the names of convicted felons.

Thank you,

M Dante
