SB 1042 Human Trafficking

Senator Shannon Grove has introduced Senate Bill 1042, a bill that would include human trafficking in the lists of crimes that are defined as serious and violent under California law, making the crime a strike under the Three Strikes law. If passed, SB 1042 will help strengthen protections for the millions of victims of sex and labor trafficking. 
 
“SB 1042 should be passed into law without hesitation. Too many victims fear coming forward and speaking out for fear of their traffickers repercussions. Too often we are restricted in our efforts to serve justice, and far too often victims and survivors never even glimpse justice. Trafficking is heinous and brutal - a crime thankfully many of us will never experience. This is a small step we can take to begin protecting our survivors and procure some small modicum of justice.” – Elizabeth Smart
 

SB 1042, is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Public Safety Committee this Tuesday, April 5,  at 9 AM, room 2200.
