Schuette Focused On Victims, Legal Culture Wars

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - With an eye toward re-election, Republican Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette starts his fourth year looking to see through a number of top initiatives he says are victim-centered.

He says he'll keep pushing anti-sex trafficking legislation to treat teenage prostitutes as victims instead of criminals. He also says he's eager to see results from testing unprocessed rape-evidence boxes in Detroit.

Schuette says he hopes an investigation of tainted steroids that killed 22 state residents bears fruit. And he says he'll oversee a confidential tip line so students can alert authorities to threats of school violence.

Schuette tells The Associated Press that the human trafficking bills show that Republicans and Democrats can tackle problems together. His office aggravated Democrats with legal positions on divisive issues like gay marriage and affirmative action.
