Michigan State Representative Rep. Gary Glenn and a professor are crafting a bill that would ban police officers from having sex with prostitutes during investigations, Michigan Radio reported.
The report, which was published on Monday, said that Michigan appears to be the only state that grants immunity to police officers.
“The reason the law is structured the way it is is because of the way the prostitution laws are written,” Bridgette Carr, a professor at the University of Michigan law School and director of the Human Trafficking Clinic there. “So for law enforcement to have any poser to investigate with immunity, they got all the power. And no one thought to go back and carve out a prohibition against sexual intercourse.”
There is no evidence that police officers in Michigan actually have sex with prostitutes but apparently the bill is a priority for both.
