Council considers program to embarrass, punish 'johns'

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A Cincinnati City Council committee gave initial approval Tuesday to researching a new anti-prostitution program that would include ordering convicted “johns” to stay out of the neighborhoods where they buy sex.

        The measure, by Councilmen David Crowley and David Pepper, also proposes to seize johns' vehicles, publish their names and photos, and establish a “john school” for first-time offenders, modeled after an award-winning program in San Francisco.

        Council on Wednesday sent the measure to the law department for research.
