NH House passes bill on human trafficking

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The House has voted unanimously to strengthen New Hampshire's laws against human trafficking.

The House voted 327-0 Wednesday to send the bill back to the Senate to consider an amendment, which had voted 24-0 to pass the bill that would protect juveniles from being prosecuted for being forced to perform illegal acts, allow victims to sue traffickers, increase penalties against trafficking and allow victims to expunge their record.

The bill also would allow victims tattooed or branded to have their removal paid for by the state's victim compensation fund.

Advocates say New Hampshire is ranked the second-worst state in the legal protections offered to trafficking victims. The bill is the product of the Attorney General's Task Force on Human Trafficking.
