ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — The state house is expected to
vote Thursday on an online prostitution bill inspired largely by a former UNM president.
Garcia was charged with promoting prostitution for allegedly playing a key role in Southwest Companions, a website that linked johns and prostitution.
A judge later ruled that under current New Mexico law, a house of prostitution must be a physical place.
Republican representative Tim Lewis’ bill would close that loophole making a website or forum to promote prostitution a felony.
