Minn. law raises consequence in prostitution crime

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Getting caught engaging in prostitution or soliciting sex for pay will come with a higher cost to Minnesota offenders.

A new state law permits authorities to forfeit the cash that was used in or intended for the sex solicitation.

It applies to prostitutes, patrons or pimps.

The law goes on the books on Thursday.

The forfeiture is in addition to other penalties offenders can face, either monetary or time behind bars.

The seized money would be split among local and state law enforcement agencies.

Some would go into a fund that pays for crime victim services, including those geared toward sexually exploited youth.
