LOS ANGELES (AP) - In order to combat prostitution, Los Angeles County leaders want to publicly shame people convicted of soliciting sex from prostitutes.

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to ask county attorneys to return in 45 days with a plan to provide for the publication of the names of individuals convicted of solicitation.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1x2ktH0 ) the supervisors called for a particular emphasis on individuals that solicit minors who are victims of sex trafficking.

Supervisor Sheila Kuehl said in the past there was a double standard in which sex workers were blamed, but their customers were not.
