With tougher laws on the books to punish human traffickers and more awareness about those forced into sexual slavery, prosecutors, lawmakers and police met Friday to plot a plan to eradicate human sex trafficking in California and across the nation.
California's attorney general on Thursday appealed a federal court decision that overturned San Diego County's concealed weapons restrictions.
Harris said the state needs to do more to create safe houses for victims around counties.
"When we think about what should be done, our response understandably is we want to protect that child, hug her," said California Attorney General Kamala D. Harris, who as a prosecutor once specialized in child sexual assault cases. "But to really do justice, to make justice a reality, it's not just about hugging the victims. It's about prosecuting the offender."
