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 prostitution defense lawyers from Grech & Packer know how undercover prostitution stings work, 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.
