MINEOLA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Nassau County has decided to quit using condoms as evidence in prostitution cases.
The move is intended to help prevent the spread of disease among sex workers, Newsday reported. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice’s office quietly put the policy change into effect last fall.
The county is believed to be the first in New York State to make the change.
