Krasner on Sex Work: I will not seek to convict sex workers. Enforcement against sex workers has only exposed them to murder, assault including sexual assault, victimization and disease.


Having represented addicts my entire career (and having represented Prevention Point—clean needle exchange—early in my career) as well as those suffering from mental illness and egregious poverty, I recognize that there is sometimes an overlap between sex work and these other issues. We are not naive. I will use the resources and the pressures of the criminal justice system to help sex workers fight addiction, recover from mental illness, and gain support against their poverty—but not by convicting sex workers.
