BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – People caught hiring prostitutes in Colorado could be offered a chance to undergo a class on the impact of the sex trade.
Proposed legislation being considered by Colorado’s district attorneys would give first-time solicitation suspects a chance to learn about the human cost of prostitution as a way to help prevent repeat offenses.
Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett says a group meeting Monday will discuss the proposal, including the effectiveness of such a class.
Classes would be modeled on a program offered in San Francisco and would be paid for through fees collected from offenders.
