The measure was approved 54-0 on Tuesday, capping a four-year push on the issue. The bill now heads to Gov. Nathan Deal for his signature.
The legislation calls for a 25-year minimum sentence for those convicted of using coercion to traffic someone under the age of 18, and slaps a minimum sentence of five years on those who pay for sex with a 16-year-old. People trying to have sex from someone even younger face at least 10 years behind bars.
