PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The General Assembly has passed legislation that would require convicted sex traffickers to register as sex offenders in Rhode Island.

According to Attorney General Peter Kilmartin, at least 30 people have been charged with sex trafficking in Rhode Island in the last two years. Kilmartin says sex trafficking is the world’s fastest growing criminal enterprise, and is tied with illegal weapons trafficking as the second-most profitable.

The bill now heads to Governor Gina Raimondo for her signature.
