GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- A state Senator from west Michigan is at the helm of the fight against human trafficking in the state.

Senator Judy Emmons of Sheridan unveiled a 19 bill package to crack down on the problem at the Grand Rapids Catholic Diocese Monday.  The bills would eliminate the statute of limitations on trafficking and allow victims to introduce evidence to use being trafficked as a defense instead of being prosecuted for crimes like prostitution.

Emmons plans to introduce the bills soon in Lansing.
