Daylin Leach of eastern Pennsylvania is supporting two pieces of legislation designed to combat human trafficking in Pennsylvania. &nbsp;</p><p>Leach said too often, minors are arrested for prostitution and treated as criminals when they are, in fact, victims. &nbsp;</p><p>"They're forced into doing this by pimps and traffickers, yet the pimps and traffickers are never there when the person's arrested," Leach said. "So we charge the young lady and she has a criminal record, and she has to deal with that, whereas the person who's actually responsible faces no consequences."</p> Wed, 08 May 2013 19:40:51 +0000 Charlee Song 9196 at http://wesa.fm
