Floridians caught trying to buy sex will soon find their mugshot online for the world to see. A new law that took effect Monday will create an online registry of people found guilty of soliciting prostitution.

The online database of sex buyers is part of a broader effort to crack down on human trafficking.The registry will target “Johns” who buy sex as opposed to prostitutes who could be forced into sex work, said state Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation. [FAC NOTE: YEAH RIGHT!]

Opponents argue the new law will do little to stop human trafficking while hurting people who have already been punished for their crimes by making it harder for them to find work and housing.
