Officials in Los Angeles County, the nation’s most populous, are adopting a get-tough tactic to deter men from soliciting sex from girls who are forced into prostitution – charging them with crimes that could mean prison time and registration as a sex offender. In California soliciting an underage sex worker carries a penalty two days to one year in jail and a $10,000 fine. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
