Washington lawmakers are considering proposals designed to reduce sex trafficking and toughen penalties for pimps and johns who force people under age 18 into prostitution. King County Detective Joel Banks works with a non-profit that works to help victims escape the lifestyle.  He says they want to make it easier for the state to prosecute pimps.
