** HOLD FOR STORY BY KRISTEN WYATT ** This Friday, March 18, 2011 picture shows Boulder attorney Beth Klein at her office in Boulder, Colo. A proposed prostitution crackdown in Colorado focuses on the customers, not the prostitutes. The state Senate planned to start work Monday, March 21, 2011 on a bill allowing a statewide network of so-called “john schools,” - "scared-straight" type programs for men who solicit sex from adult prostitutes. “Ninety-nine percent come from Denver. They do not come Mexico or Southeast Asia; they’re our girls, our Denver middle school girls,” said Klein, a prominent advocate for john schools. Last year, Klein successfully pushed for a human trafficking law that added the sex trade to Colorado’s Organized Crime Act. Klein said the next step is to confront the demand side for prostitution. less
