           SUBJECT  :    Sexually exploited minors pilot project:  
          Alameda County

           SOURCE  :     Author


           DIGEST  :    This bill extends the sunset of the existing 
          Alameda County pilot project relating to sexually exploited 
          minors five years, and to require the Alameda County 
          district attorney to provide a report to the Legislature on 
          the pilot contingent upon local funding and operation of 
          the pilot, as specified.

           ANALYSIS  :    Existing law expressly authorizes Alameda 
          County, contingent upon local funding, to "establish a 
          pilot project?to develop a comprehensive, replicative, 
          multidisciplinary model to address the needs and effective 
          treatment of commercially sexually exploited minors who 
          have been arrested or detained by local law enforcement 
          for" prostitution crimes, as specified.  These provisions 
                                                           CONTINUED

          sunset January 1, 2012.  (Welfare and Institutions Code 
          Section 18259 et seq.)

          This bill extends the sunset on these statutory provisions 
          five years, until January 1, 2017.

          This bill additionally requires the District Attorney for 
          the County of Alameda, on or before April 1, 2016, to 
          "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?The report 
          shall, at a minimum, include the number of sexually 
          exploited minors, if any, diverted by the program? and a 
          summary of the types of services and alternate treatments 
          provided to those minors."

          This bill provides that the report required by its 
          provisions "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."
