Abstract

The current era of globalization is marked by the rapid development of technology. The presence of technology has given a new nuance to human life that touches all aspects of life. The development of technology makes it easy for people to carry out activities to meet their needs and interact with other people wherever they are. Technology besides bringing benefits such as making it easy for people to carry out their activities, it also causes losses. Crimes through misuse of information technology are increasingly being committed. The type and mode of crime itself continues to grow, for instance, the proliferation of obscene acts as a livelihood carried out through information technology. On the other hand, the success rate of disclosing perpetrators of crimes with information technology is still very low. Therefore, we need strict and consistent law enforcement which is able to create a deterrent effect. The purpose of this study was to analyze law enforcement efforts against perpetrators of obscene acts with others as their livelihood and / or pimps by taking advantage of female prostitutes carried out through the internet, using empirical juridical methods. As for the results that the perpetrators of obscene acts as a livelihood, there are several laws that regulate online prostitution activities, but it must be seen the elements of the acts committed by the perpetrators of obscene acts as a livelihood so that applicable legislative provisions can be applied more precise towards the perpetrators. However, for the legal basis in taking actions against the perpetrators, the provisions of Article 296 and Article 506 of the Criminal Procedure Code can be used, which specifically regulates crimes committed by a pimp and also Article 55 of the Criminal Procedure Code, which is considered as a person who participates in an act or entices to commit an act or facilitate obscene acts with others as a livelihood and habit.
