Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with Prostitution?
If you have been accused of soliciting sex, hiring a prostitute, acting as a pimp or engaging in prostitution, you can be charged with prostitution under Tex. Penal Code § 43.02. An individual can be charged with this offense if they:
- Knowingly engage in sexual conduct for a fee,
- Offer to engage in sexual conduct for a fee,
- Agree to engage in sexual conduct for a fee, or
- Solicit another person in a public place to engage in sexual conduct for hire.
A first offense is punishable as a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine not more than $2,000.
This offense is punishable as a Class A misdemeanor if the alleged offender has previously been convicted one or two times. A Class A misdemeanor prostitution offense is punishable by up to one year jail and/or a fine up to $4,000
A fourth or subsequent prostitution offense is punishable as a state jail felony, which can result in a jail sentence from 180 days to two years and/or a fine up to $10,000.
Engaging in sexual acts in exchange for money or favors is termed prostitution. It is illegal to engage in any activity that requires you to pay for sexual favors or charge for the same. Such acts are considered a major threat to the morals in the community. Therefore the consequences to such actions can be grave. Prostitution is taken very seriously and the police have often gone undercover to crack down on such operations and entrap individuals.
If you are charged with prostitution it is very important that you plead not guilty and get our assault lawyers to represent you and your case. Rules vary, but a first offense is usually filed as a misdemeanor. However, repeated charges of prostitution can lead to severe penalties and can eventually be considered a felony. You can be charged with soliciting prostitution the same way as anyone would who is carrying out prostitution themselves. Getting charged with prostitution can have long-term implications and will negatively affect your future. Considered a serious sex crime, such charges require our committed attorneys that have proven records in criminal court. Being charged with a crime like this can affect you, your family, and your future.
