Bill to Require Restitution for Victims of Child Sex Trafficking

A bill will soon be presented to the Governor that will require perpetrators to pay restitution to their child victims of sex trafficking. Through this bill, Senate Bill 88 sponsored by Senator Sharon Weston Broom, the Exploited Children’s Special Fund will be created. The fund will assist victims with necessities, such as education and housing. Other parts of the bill will work to ease the stigma placed on these children by creating a diversion program.
