Youth And Sex Workers Are Scared to Carry Condoms
- City Hall, New York City 06/06/2013 by Linda Perry Barr (WBAI News)
At City Hall advocates and city officials criticized the use of condoms as evidence in prostitution cases. They say this sends the wrong message and counters efforts in New York State to stem the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. To correct this problem advocates are pushing for passage of the No Condoms As Evidence Bill and two District Attorneys announced they will direct their staff not to build cases based on condom seizures.
