I came across this law while checking my facts. For the record, I’m not advocating that it should be legal to proposition a teen. The law is clearly targeted at sexual predators. It effectively changes the age of consent in Washington to 18 without revising the actual law. It’s language is overly broad and subject to interpretation. It doesn’t even specify a minimum age for either party, so two randy 17 year-olds could conceivably each be charged. Laws like this get overturned, meaning that convictions get dismissed. IMHO it needs to be rewritten.

You might notice the Google watermarks in the background images. The backgrounds are from Google Street View. If I read their fair use policy right, Google allows fair use as long as the images used are properly attributed.
