U.S. Supreme Court

Athanasaw & Sampson v. United States, 227 U.S. 326 (1913)

Athanasaw & Sampson v. United States

No. 588

Argued January 7, 8, 1913

Decided February 24, 1913

227 U.S. 326

Syllabus

Hoke v. United States, ante, p. 227 U. S. 308, followed to effect that the White Slave Traffic Act of June 25, 1910, is constitutional.

The White Slave Traffic Act of 1910 against inducing women and girls to enter upon a life of prostitution or debauchery covers acts which might ultimately lead to that phase of debauchery which consists in sexual actions, and in this case held that there was no error in refusing to charge that the gist of the offense is the intention of the person when the transportation is procured, or that the word " debauchery " as used in the statute means sexual intercourse, or that the act does not extend to any vice or immorality other than that applicable to sexual actions.

The facts, which involve the constitutionality and construction of the White Slave Act and validity of an indictment and conviction thereunder, are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
