A new law in 2020 gives immunity to persons who commit a crime but report a much more serious crime, and also removes the possession of a condom as evidence of specific crimes related to sex work.

SB 233 states that if you commit a misdemeanor violation of the Controlled Substances Act (such as possession of an illegal drug), or any acts related to prostitution, you will be immune from prosecution if police discover you have commited any of those offenses while you are reporting sexual assault, human trafficking, stalking, robbery, assault, kidnapping, threats, blackmail, extortion, burglary, or another violent crime. In addition, if you are found to have a condom in your possession, it is no longer considered evidence of probable cause toward an arrest for a prostitution-related crime.
