ASSISTANT MONTGOMERY COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY LEAVES FOR WORK IN AFRICA

Tyler Dunman has been an Assistant District Attorney under Brett Ligon for the past 12-years. He will be leaving that office for a job with the Human Trafficking Institute which is based in Washington D.C. It is a group devoted to fighting human trafficking worldwide. He will be relocating to the African Nation of Kampala, Uganda. He will be working with local prosecutors on combating human trafficking there starting near the end of the year. He said he with miss working for a phenomenal District Attorney but is looking forward to what God has in store for us down the road. He, his wife and children are going to miss friends, family, and their church but is excited about the opportunities and the way God will be able to use them in doing the work. He said his girls, ages 10, 8 and 3 are excited about the move but will be facing some cultural shock but he will see the good in that. Dunman said they have connected with a good International School there. He is also looking forward to the milder temperatures which average 78 degrees year-round. He said the human trafficking there is about the same as here. Domestically you have women and kids forced into sex trafficking and labor. However, he said you have the Ugandans exploited internationally. One way is a recruiter from another country come in and promise jobs of excellent pay in India or the Middle East, With the Ugandans not having a lot are very enticed by this and accept the job. Once they get there instead of being paid they are forced to work or put in the sex trade. It then is very hard for the families to get their loved ones back. He said his children are also looking forward to participating in some safari adventures.
