Children forced into the sex trafficking trade could soon have a way to "wipe the slate clean."  House Bill 4146,  co-sponsored by Jason Conger, provides for juveniles who have been convicted of prostitution or other sex trafficking crimes to have their records expunged when they turn 18.  "Once they are adults and they are out of the sex trade, they can start over.  They can get rid of that record in their history.  Obviously they can't get rid of the mental anguish and the other issues that come with that.  But at least their criminal record will be clean.  And then when they try to start over and get a job as an adult, they don't have a criminal record hanging over them."  Conger says most Oregonians don't realize how big, and what a problem sex trafficking is.  The bill passed the House today and now goes on to the Senate.
