AB186,1,3 1An Act to amend 944.30 (1m) (intro.) and 944.30 (2m) of the statutes; relating
2to:
prosecuting a person under the age of 18 with committing an act of
3prostitution.
Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under this bill, a person who is under the age of 18 may not be prosecuted for
committing an act of prostitution. This is a change from current law, under which a
person who is under the age of 18 may be prosecuted for committing an act of
prostitution, a Class A misdemeanor. This bill also eliminates the option under
current law in cases where a person under the age of 18 has committed an act of
prostitution for a court to enter a consent decree under the Juvenile Justice Code, or
a deferred prosecution agreement under the Juvenile Justice Code or adult criminal
statutes, if the court determines that a consent decree or deferred prosecution
agreement will serve the best interests of the person being prosecuted and will not
harm society.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
AB186,1 4Section 1. 944.30 (1m) (intro.) of the statutes is amended to read:
AB186,1,65 944.30 (1m) (intro.) Any Except as provided in sub. (2m), any person who
