Enact Sections 1-4 of AB-1760: Decriminalizing Victims of Sex Trafficking

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


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.

This bill:

  1. 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.
  2. Prohibits the arrest of a minor for the suspected crime, if the minor meets the criteria stated above
  3. Requires any record of an arrest previously made to be sealed and destroyed if an officer makes the specified factual determination
  4. 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
