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. One provision amends trafficking laws to eliminate the requirement to prove force, fraud of coercion when the victim is a minor.  The proposals backed by Shared Hope International are being pitched in other states, including Oregon.
