A report says Massachusetts needs to provide more safe houses and other services for victims of human trafficking as part of a comprehensive plan to address the sex trade.
 
    A 19-member human trafficking task force created under a 2011 law that increased penalties for human trafficking released its findings on Monday.
 
    Attorney General Martha Coakley , who chaired the panel, called human trafficking a “brutal and dehumanizing crime,” but one that is lucrative business for its purveyors.
 
    Among the recommendations is the establishment of safe houses that could provide short and long-term housing and other services to young victims trying to escape sexual exploitation.
 
    The report also seeks to reduce demand for trafficking by creating a so-called “John school” for first-time buyers of sexual services. (Associated Press)
