Proposition 35

California residents will soon have the unique opportunity to vote for a very important legislative initiative on Nov. 6 designed to curtail sexual predators and shine a bright light on the shadowy world of criminal traffickers. The goal of this “Californians Against Sexual Exploitation (CASE) Act” (known as Proposition 35) is to dole out tougher penalties for convicted offenders involved in sexual crimes.

Re “Citizens take the initiative” (Page A1, Sept. 10): Some people who oppose Proposition 35 contend that creating tougher laws against human trafficking, forced labor and sexual coercion belongs with the legislature.

Daphne Phung of California Against Slavery and Chris Kelly of the Safer California Foundation were both disappointed in their attempts to get the legislature interested in strengthening those laws, so they took action with Prop 35.
