Assembly backs clearing the records of certain sex offenders

4-26-2011 Nevada:

The Assembly on Monday gave unanimous approval to a bill that would let victims of sex trafficking clear prostitution convictions from their records.

Assemblyman John Hambrick R-Las Vegas, said Assembly Bill 6 was designed to give those individuals who are the real victims a break by freeing them from having to admit they have a criminal history in situations such as applying for a job.

“It gives them a break, gives them a leg up on starting a new life,”
he told the body.

Hambrick said the measure is just one more thing lawmakers can do to address “the scourge of human trafficking.”
