A proposal to increase penalties for people who buy sex with children has been watered-down in an Oregon Senate Committee and Senators aren't happy about it; but they moved the proposal to the House anyway, trusting a committee to will do the work to restore some of its strength. Senator Floyd Prozanski says, in it's latest form, the bill only makes the sex trafficking crime a felony on a third offense, but when they're done amending it in the House, they hope it will maintian a very stiff penalty for the first offense, including jail time.  Shared Hope International, a group working to end human trafficking, recently gave Oregon a grade of "D" on their report card.  They say the state's laws do not give law enforcement the tools they need to investigate, arrest and imprison pimps and johns who abduct and sell children for sex.
