New Bills Being Signed Into Law Helping 1st Responders, Combating Sex Trafficking


BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Hundreds of new bills were signed into law in Annapolis on Tuesday.

“My mom had a boyfriend who would molest me and then, in turn, shoot me up with heroin so he could market me to his friends,” says one victim.

“Over the past four or five years we’ve received up to 213 child victims in our state,” says Nadine Finnegan-Carr, with the University of Maryland School of Social Work.
