The state says it’s fighting sex trafficking in a new way.

Tough legislation — introduced this past Wednesday to lawmakers — gives authorities more tools to fight pimps and help victims.

The illegal sex trade, metro says, is luring more of our local young women and men.

Sgt. Don Hoier is showing us Websites where he investigates sex traffickers. The people involved try to be sly, he said.

“There’s pics, videos, talks about donation, as opposed to price,” Sgt. Hoier said.

Hoyer, who has spent years with vice, says no doubt, sex is being sold illegally, a click of a finger.
