LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 799, Swanson. Commercially sexually exploited minors.
Existing law, until January 1, 2012, authorizes the District Attorney of Alameda County to create a pilot project, contingent upon local funding, for the purposes of developing a comprehensive, replicative, multidisciplinary model to address the needs and effective treatment of commercially sexually exploited minors, as specified.
This bill would extend the repeal date of these provisions to January 1, 2017. This bill would also require the district attorney to submit, on or before April 1, 2016, a prescribed report to the Legislature, contingent upon specified events.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 18259.1 is added to the Welfare and Institutions Code, to read:

18259.1.
 The District Attorney for the County of Alameda shall, on or before April 1, 2016, submit a report to the Legislature that summarizes the activities performed by the district attorney pursuant to this section, so that the Legislature may determine whether the pilot project should be extended or expanded to other counties prior to the repeal of this chapter pursuant to Section 18259.5. The report shall, at a minimum, include the number of sexually exploited minors, if any, diverted by the program authorized in subdivision (c) of Section 18259, and a summary of the types of services and alternate treatments provided to those minors. This report shall be contingent upon local funding, and shall be required only if the County of Alameda establishes a pilot project and the district attorney performs any of the activities of the pilot project authorized by this chapter. The report shall not include any information that would reveal the identity of a specific sexually exploited minor.

SEC. 2.

 Section 18259.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is amended to read:

18259.5.
 This chapter shall remain in effect only until January 1, 2017, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2017, deletes or extends that date.
