The bill grants immunity to the charge of prostitution, soliciting for
prostitution, or prostitute making display (prostitution offense) to a person
who seeks assistance from a law enforcement officer, the 911 system, or

(crime) if the evidence for the charge of a prostitution offense was

obtained as a result of the person seeking assistance or as a result of the
need for assistance. A person who receives immunity for a prostitution
offense is not immune from prosecution for other offenses, and a district

from a report, recording, or other statement provided as a result of the
initial prostitution offense to prosecute any other offense.
For the purposes of the bill, person is defined as the victim of the
crime, a person who is a victim of human trafficking for sexual servitude,
or a witness to the crime. The bill sets forth the applicable violent crimes
or offenses.
