State Legislative Report, v8 n6 Oct 1983
This issue brief explores the problem of child pornography and teenage prostitution and examines some of the strategies federal, state, and local governments employ to address these social problems. After a brief review of Congressional actions and Supreme Court decisions, state statutes affecting pornography and prostitution are reviewed, and innovative state approaches (including Georgia's comprehensive legislative package for combating pornography) are described. Options state legislators might consider when reviewing legislative initiatives are listed. These concern various ways of strengthening and clarifying laws, solving evidentiary questions, and making administrative changes. In conclusion, programs addressing the specific needs of young victims of sexual exploitation are discussed. (RH)
