Gov. Terry Branstad has signed a bill into law that is meant to crack down on prostitution and pimping including minors.

The bill signed into law Thursday removes offenses from the records of anyone previously convicted of prostitution as a minor, and it increases the penalty for pimping involving a minor. The new law establishes an additional fine for offenders of such human trafficking, to go toward a victim fund.

The measure was approved overwhelming in the state House and Senate.
