CASE Act qualifies for November ballot
May 11, 2012, 05:00 AM

The Californians Against Sexual Exploitation Act, an initiative to fight back against human trafficking and sexual exploitation of women and children in California, qualified for the November 2012 ballot yesterday.   

The CASE Act will:

· Increase prison terms for human traffickers;

· Increase fines for human traffickers, up to $1.5M to fund victim services;

· Remove the need to prove force to prosecute sex trafficking of a minor;

· Mandate human trafficking training for law enforcement;

· Make sex traffickers register as sex offenders;

· Require that all sex offenders disclose Internet accounts; and

· Prohibit use of sexual history to impeach or prove criminal liability of trafficked victims.

It is supported by U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo.
