LAS VEGAS (AP) - The producer of a documentary about sex trafficking in Las Vegas and Nevada says he expects a flood of hotline calls after the show about the exploitation of children and young adults airs statewide this week.

Pastor Troy Martinez on Monday called the 30-minute program titled "Trafficked No More" a beginning for addressing the problem, not a cure-all.

The video airs at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on TV stations around the state.

Martinez says a woman who viewed just a four-minute preview at a Las Vegas church came forward in recent days to seek help.

Officials hope the program highlights new state laws that identify sex trafficking, stiffen penalties for pimps and provide help to victims.

A key provision of the law presumes that a prostitute cannot consent to being trafficked.
