Bill Would Increase Fine for Soliciting to $5,000

Tuesday, February 7th, 2023 -- 10:01 AM

(Robin Colbert, WIBA/WRN) A renewed effort at the State Capitol to increase the mandatory fine for soliciting prostitutes.

State Senator Andre Jacque of DePere say it's an effort to prevent human trafficking by limiting demand. “This is meant to be a significant enough amount that it is something that changes behavior, that causes some some forethought.”

The bill has bipartisan backing. It would create an automatic 5-thousand dollar court fee for anyone convicted of paying for sex with a prostitute.
