Ca. Assembly Blocks Legislation That Would Have Made Child Trafficking Punishable By Life in prison


July13,2023



From London.

The California Assembly Committee on Public Safety has squashed a bill that would have increased the charges for human trafficking, despite it passing through the state’s Senate with bipartisan support. Human trafficking is currently considered a non-serious crime and cannot be considered a strike under California’s three-strikes law.

2002 kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart: “SB14 should be passed into law without hesitation. Too many victims fear coming forward and speaking out for fear of their traffickers' repercussions.”

ELANA: The California Assembly Committee on Public Safety obeys its orders from on high.
