Banned from loitering in her home borough for 26 years
In 2013, a sex worker challenged charges of having breached an Anti-social Behaviour Order (ASBO) banning her for 26 years from loitering in the London borough where she lives. With the support of the ECP which mounted a publicity campaign and helped her prepare for court, she was found not guilty! If she had been convicted she could have faced up to five years in prison and been separated from her son.
