	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 799, Swanson. Commercially sexually exploited minors.
   Existing law, until January 1, 2012, authorizes the District
Attorney of Alameda County to create a pilot project, contingent upon
local funding, for the purposes of developing a comprehensive,
replicative, multidisciplinary model to address the needs and
effective treatment of commercially sexually exploited minors, as
specified.
   This bill would extend the repeal date of these provisions to
January 1, 2017. This bill would also require the district attorney
to submit, on or before April 1, 2016, a prescribed report to the
Legislature, contingent upon specified events.



THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 18259.1 is added to the Welfare and
Institutions Code, to read:
   18259.1.  The District Attorney for the County of Alameda shall,
on or before April 1, 2016, submit a report to the Legislature that
summarizes the activities performed by the district attorney pursuant
to this section, so that the Legislature may determine whether the
pilot project should be extended or expanded to other counties prior
to the repeal of this chapter pursuant to Section 18259.5. The report
shall, at a minimum, include the number of sexually exploited
minors, if any, diverted by the program authorized in subdivision (c)
of Section 18259, and a summary of the types of services and
alternate treatments provided to those minors. This report shall be
contingent upon local funding, and shall be required only if the
County of Alameda establishes a pilot project and the district
attorney performs any of the activities of the pilot project
authorized by this chapter. The report shall not include any
information that would reveal the identity of a specific sexually
exploited minor.
  SEC. 2.  Section 18259.5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code is
amended to read:
   18259.5.  This chapter shall remain in effect only until January
1, 2017, and as of that date is repealed, unless a later enacted
statute, that is enacted before January 1, 2017, deletes or extends
that date.
