Senator Grove Announces Critical Legislation to Go After Criminals Convicted of Human Trafficking Offenses

Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) has partnered with Kern County District Attorney Cynthia Zimmer to announce critical legislation to protect victims of sex and human trafficking crimes. Currently, human trafficking is not defined as a serious or violent felony under California law. Senate Bill 1042 would add human trafficking to those lists, which would make the crime a strike under the Three Strikes law.    


  • Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield) 
  • Cynthia Zimmer, Kern County District Attorney
  • Members of the Bakersfield Police Department

WHAT: To announce important legislation targeting criminals convicted of human trafficking.

WHEN: Friday, March 4, 2021 at 2:00 PM

WHERE: Bakersfield Police Department 

1601 Truxtun Avenue, Bakersfield, CA 93301
