Bill Summary

The act grants immunity from the charge of prostitution, soliciting for prostitution, or prostitute making display or an equivalent municipal offense (prostitution offense) to a person who seeks assistance from a law enforcement officer, the 911 system, or a medical provider for a victim or as a victim of a violent crime or offense (crime) if the evidence for the charge of a prostitution offense was obtained as a result of the person seeking assistance or as a result of the need for assistance. A person who receives immunity for a prostitution offense is not immune from prosecution for other offenses, and a district attorney or law enforcement officer may obtain or use evidence obtained from a report, recording, or other statement provided as a result of the initial prostitution offense to prosecute any other offense.

For the purposes of the act, "person" is defined as the victim of a crime, a person who is a victim of human trafficking for sexual servitude, or a witness to a crime. The act sets forth the applicable violent crimes or offenses.
