Lawmakers Hear Testimony on Sex Trafficking Bill

Posted: Updated:

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Camille Naaktgeboren said she wants the world to know the grim truth of modern day slavery so other victims in Nevada will have the same chance recover that she's had.

Naaktgeboren was one of more than 100 people who converged on the Nevada Assembly and Senate joint judiciary meeting Wednesday to discuss the anti-sex trafficking bill AB 67. A Las Vegas room where the hearing was broadcast was also full.

Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is the primary backer of the measure. She says the large turnout shows how great the need is for laws dealing with sex trafficking in Nevada.

AB 67 defines sex trafficking, stiffens the penalties associated with it and provides other tools for victims and law enforcement addressing trafficking.
