Manhattan DA to stop prosecuting prostitution, asks court to dismiss cases

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr announced that his office will no longer prosecute prostitution and unlicensed massage under a new policy. He also asked a Manhattan criminal court to dismiss nearly 6,000 such cases, with some dating back to 1976. Vance noted prosecuting such cases doesn’t make the city safer and disproportionately impacts vulnerable people, like the LGBTQ community.

"The District Attorney’s Office, however, will continue to prosecute crimes associated with prostitution, including patronizing a sex worker and sex trafficking, according to The New York Times."

Good, prostitution should be legal anyway. It would make things safer for all involved and make it easier to crack down on human trafficking.

I couldn't honestly care less. I wouldn't participate in this activity whether it is legal or not. I actually really pity the types that need to pay for this type of thing.
