in 2019, the Florida Legislature passed a Bill sponsored by Senator Lauren Book (SB 540) that was titled “Human Trafficking”.

In the Bill Analysis, the sponsor stated, Human trafficking is a form of modernday slavery. Young children, teenagers, and adults are all victims of human trafficking, who are subjected to force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of sexual exploitation or forced labor…Human trafficking is the third-largest international crime industry, generating a profit of an estimated $32 billion every year. In 2016, there were an estimated 40.3 million victims of human trafficking…. Florida ranks third in the nation for reported cases of human trafficking.”

The Bill passed and was signed into law, creating Florida Statute 943.0433, the “Solicitation for Prostitution Registry”. Individuals who committed the offense(s) on or after January 1, 2021 and are convicted (regardless of adjudication) on or after January 1, 2021 are currently being placed on the Soliciting for Prostitution Public Database.

So far there are none.
