Legislation would increase the penalty for some solicitation crimes

Lansing
Lansing

LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan House approved legislation this week that would change the sentencing guidelines for certain solicitation crimes. The legislation sponsored by State Representative Tom Leonard, of DeWitt, would increase the penalty for someone convicted of trying to solicit sex from an undercover officer in cases when the offender thought the officer was a minor. Leonard says the cop might not have been underage, but that shouldn't spare the offender from getting sentenced as though she was. The State House passed the bill on Wednesday, and now it goes on to the State Senate.
