Prostitution Charges

Arrests for prostitution most commonly focus on sting operations, a ring of prostitution such as massage parlors, dancers or personal escorts, internet based prostitution web sites, dating web sites, Craig’s list or other on-line classified sections of newspapers (personal ads).

Law enforcement’s goal is to make numerous arrests of both the accused prostitute and accused “John(s)” therefore a comprehensive criminal defense is necessary. It is common for the police to demand a written statement after an arrest claiming it is just “your version of events” the best legal strategy is to never provide any statement to and law enforcement.

In New York State there are complex prostitution laws but they can be broken down into the following categories:

  • Prostitution in generally – Sexual Conduct with another in exchange for a fee.
  • Prostitution in school zone
  • Patronizing a Prostitute – “John” Arrests
  • Promoting Prostitution – Pimping
  • Compelling Prostitution – Forcing another under the age of 16 to engage in prostitution
  • Sex Trafficking – A person advances or profits from prostitution by several methods
  • Permitting Prostitution – allowing your home or property to be used for prostitution purposes

Since these laws vary in range from a misdemeanor to a felony they can carry with the significant penalties including possible State prison time.
