Kenneth is assigned to defend a pimp accused of violating the sex offender registration act. He argues in court that sex trafficking is not deemed a sex crime under current law. His client is sentenced to 6-12 years in state prison for leading a prostitution ring that forced girls as young as 15 years old into the sex trade. However, because the client is already a Level 2 sex offender, a second sex offense would have raised him to level 3.
A reporter discovers the discrepancy and confirms that sex trafficking is a sex crime under law. The Attorney General makes a statement encouraging the judge to up the charges, noting that the prison sentence will not change, even if the judge makes it a sex crime.
