Enact Sections 1-4 of AB-1760: Decriminalizing Victims of Sex Trafficking
This petition had 67 supporters
On May 27, 2016, California amended AB-1760 that requires officers to determine if a minor arrested is a victim of human trafficking or has engaged in a commercial sex act. This will provide the minor with immunity from arrest and prosecution of non-violent offenses as a direct result of being trafficked.
We want to advocate for this to be a law in all 50 states.
- Requires a peace officer to determine if a suspect of a crime is a minor who has engaged in a commercial sex act or is a minor who is a human trafficking victim, and whether any nonviolent crime the person is suspected of committed was a direct result of being trafficked.
- Prohibits the arrest of a minor for the suspected crime, if the minor meets the criteria stated above
- Requires any record of an arrest previously made to be sealed and destroyed if an officer makes the specified factual determination
- Requires the peace officer to report suspected abuse or neglect of the minor to the county child welfare agency if the officer has made the specific factual determination
