Dear Representative Claman -Thank you for drafting Alaska H.B. 112, an effort to end allowing sexual interaction between police and sex trafficking victims and/or prostitutes during on going investigations and sting operations related to sex trafficking and prostitution.For those of us who have lived the sex trade, especially those of us who have worked in Alaska, the understanding of how empty it feels to be disqualified from equal protection under the law, along with being disqualified from fair and ethical treatment during investigations, is beyond disheartening –

I commend your effort to have law enforcement find more intelligent, ethical and humane ways to determine proof of coercion when investigating sex work and sex trafficking. Police should not be having sexual contact with prostitutes during investigations, nor should they be able to lie about being affiliated with law enforcement if asked direct while engaging in sexual contact with the intention of arrest. In remembrance of the 1980s “Lower 48” Donna Gentile cold case murder / NHI file, a case that touches my heart and community, and also from my own personal experiences, I thank you for your compassion and dedication to humane ethics in contemporary policy.
