LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has praised the Michigan state house and senate for passing several bills that further the fight against human trafficking.
The three bills increased punishments for traffickers and helped victims.
Two of the bills will make it easier for victims of trafficking to remove any prostitution charges from their records, while the third increases the punishment for convicted traffickers to 15 years in prison.
Schuette says these bills are another step in the battle against the second largest, and fastest growing, criminal industry.
The bills now go to Governor Snyder for approval.
