#1 Prostitution Decriminalized In California For Minors by Cincinnatus 29.09.2016 15:40


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – California Gov. Jerry Brown is approving legislation decriminalizing prostitution for minors and taking other steps to make life after human trafficking easier for those forced into it.

The Democratic governor announced Monday he signed SB1322 to ban police from charging people under the age of 18 with prostitution.

He also signed bills allowing people to defend themselves against additional criminal charges or records if they were coerced to commit an offense as a human trafficking victim.

Others will raise the age from 13 to 15 that kids can testify outside a courtroom in human trafficking cases, protect victims’ names from disclosure and mandate they have access to county services.


"Progressives" and their good intentions. The idea is that children who are victims of human trafficking and forced into prostitution might be able to move on with their lives without a criminal record. You can just bet low life pimps won't find some way to take advantage of this measure which will prove even worse for the prostitutes.
