If a girl has a job, she may have to find a way to buy the clothes she wants.
But in the eyes of the law, it’s a felony to sell, or give away, clothing that is “wicked.”
That means she could be sent to jail.
A new law introduced by California lawmakers makes the crime a Class C felony punishable by up to three years in prison.
In addition, the state’s law criminalizes selling or giving away “wicking” clothing.
In addition to the new law, California lawmakers have introduced a raft of other changes to make it easier for girls to protect themselves from the dangers of the industry.
The law also makes it illegal to sell or give a girl the clothes that her parents buy.
But the state also gives girls an exception if they don’t have the money to pay for the clothes, so long as they wear them for six months.
The California State Assembly passed the legislation in a unanimous vote last week, but the bill has been stalled in the Senate.
