Michigan law allows police to have sex with prostitutes

According to reports Michigan is the only state in the country, which has a law that allows police to have sex with prostitutes while investigating a case.

The director of the Human Trafficking Clinic at the University of Michigan Law School, Bridgette Carr said that he is now working with Rep. Gary Glenn to draft a bill to get rid of the law.

Ms. Carr said that she became aware of the exemption a couple of years ago, when Hawai was "phasing out their exemption".

“And a number of folks in the human trafficking community were upset that Michigan retained the exemption,” she said.

The law allows the state’s police officers to have sex with trafficking victims without facing any punishment.

“The reason the law is structured the way it is is because of the way the prostitution laws are written,” she said.

“So for law enforcement to have any power to investigate with immunity, they got all the power. And no one thought to go back and carve out a prohibition against sexual intercourse.”

She said that none of the police officers, whom she spoke to have taken an advantage if this law.

She also added that she came to know from her own clients that people either present themselves as cops, who are actually cops or who are impersonating cops and know about this exemption, threaten her clients with it sometimes.

It is not rampant, but it happens and it says something about us as a community that we allow this type of exemption, especially for law enforcement, whether it’s used very often or not
