Sex work

Michelle Billman

A former sex worker filed a federal lawsuit this week against the state of Nevada, saying that she was trafficked through the state’s legal brothel system. Her pro-bono lawyer, Jason Guinasso, alleges that recruiting workers and clients to go to Nevada brothels is in direct violation with the federal Mann Act, which makes it a felony to transport people over state lines for "any sexual activity for which any person can be charged with a criminal offense.”
