State Rep. Adam C. Miller (D-Columbus) today introduced legislation to establish a new grant program to help local courts better handle human trafficking and prostitution cases in Ohio. The million-dollar grant program would fund two important efforts aimed at cracking down and preventing human trafficking and prostitution.
“For too long we tried to combat human trafficking by increasing fees and penalties, and it hasn’t worked. The programs this grant seeks to support are innovative because they go to the fundamental root cause of sexual abuse,” said Rep. Miller. “Columbus and other communities are coming up with innovative programs like CATCH courts and Johns Schools that educate and work to prevent human trafficking and prostitution. Prevention and education are key and these grants will help expand these programs throughout Ohio.”
