Bill Would Make It Easier To Charge Those Who Solicit Sex Online

(Olympia, WA)  --  A bill that would make it easier in Washington to prosecute people who solicit sex online is awaiting Governor Inslee's signature.  The measure, which was approved without opposition by lawmakers, changes state law to say defendants have committed the misdemeanor crime of patronizing a prostitute in the place where they made contact and where the contact was received.  Supporters tell the "News Tribune" the growing prevalence of the internet and social media makes it necessary to extend protection of children to online crimes.
