New legislation targets sex trafficking

Sen. Thom Goolsby, a Republican from Wilmington, has introduced a bill cracking down on sex trafficking.

His SB122 would require convicted sex traffickers to report to law enforcement after they are released from prison, and register as sex offenders. They would also have to wear GPS devices.

Goolsby contends North Carolina is one of the top 10 states for sex trafficking. He is planning a related follow-up bill, titled “Safe Harbor.”

“I was shocked when I learned that one in four runaways are involved in sex trafficking within 48 hours of being on the streets,” Goolsby said in a news release. “The war against sex trafficking has begun.” .
