Riverside Prostitution Defense Attorney
Have you been arrested for prostitution?
You can be arrested for prostitution if you have participated in sexual
acts in exchange for money. In most states in the U.S. prostitution, solicitation
and pandering (pimping) are considered to be illegal acts. In this state
the "john", or customer, and the prostitute are both aggressively
prosecuted. If you are being charged with prostitution for the first time,
you will most likely be charged with a misdemeanor. If you have prior
convictions for prostitution, additional offenses may be charged as felonies.
If an individual states that he or she is providing services as an escort
or as a masseuse, that individual will still be arrested for the crime
of prostitution if money is being exchanged. Life circumstances sometimes
occur so that those individuals with no prior criminal record find themselves
in the difficult situation of being arrested for solicitation of prostitution,
or prostitution. If you have been arrested for these or other
sex crimes, there is help available to you. The Riverside criminal defense lawyers

and are knowledgeable about the laws involving entrapment. We will challenge
evidence involving these sting operations, and pursue a strong defense
for your prostitution charges.
