CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Senate Bill
No. 510


Introduced by Senator Jones

February 21, 2019


An act to add Section 266m to the Penal Code, relating to crimes.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 510, as introduced, Jones. Human trafficking: additional term of sentence.
Existing law makes human trafficking a crime, and imposes specified penalties when that offense is committed against a minor, including, at a minimum, 5, 8, or 12 years in state prison and a fine of not more than $500,000. Existing law also makes it a felony to take a person under 18 years of age from the parent or guardian, without their consent, for the purpose of prostitution.
This bill would require a person convicted of a human trafficking offense against a minor or of taking a minor for the purpose of prostitution, when any part of the violation takes place upon the grounds of, or within 1,000 feet of, a public or private elementary, vocational, junior high, or high school during the hours that the school is open for classes or school-related programs, or at any time when minors are using the facility, to receive, in addition to any other penalty imposed, an additional term of one year in state prison. By imposing a new enhancement to the penalty of a crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: YES  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 266M is added to the Penal Code, to read:

266M.
 A person who is convicted of a violation of Section 236.1 for an offense committed against a minor, or Section 267 if the violation takes place on the grounds of, or within 1,000 feet of, a public or private elementary, vocational, junior high, or high school during hours that the school is open for classes or school-related programs or at any time when minors are using the facility, shall receive, in addition to any other penalty imposed, an additional term of one year in the state prison.

SEC. 2.

 No reimbursement is required by this act pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or changes the penalty for a crime or infraction, within the meaning of Section 17556 of the Government Code, or changes the definition of a crime within the meaning of Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California Constitution.
