Inducement/Promotion of Prostitution

The law in Minnesota that includes “inducement” deals with the so-called “pimps” and “bosses”. Simply put, these individuals make money by prostituting out others. They are the ones who run the operations, who determines what a prostitute does and for how much money. They often take a large percentage of the revenue generated, leaving the prostitute with a very small amount.
