Defending Those Accused of Prostitution in Los Angeles
A person may be charged with prostitution if caught exchanging sexual acts for money or other valuable items. Even if the sexual act was not performed, simply offering or agreeing to an exchange for a sexual act is considered prostitution. As legally defined, prostitution may also include solicitation or pandering.
- Pandering involves the solicitation of another to perform an act of prostitution for the pimp or a third party and the organization of people at a place to offer sexual activity in exchange for money.
- Solicitation is defined a person offering money for a sexual act to a prostitute.
If you have been arrested for prostitution, pandering, or solicitation of prostitution in the Los Angeles area, act now to defend your rights. The skilled Los Angeles criminal defense attorney at Diamond & Associates is intimately familiar with the California laws on prostitution, and may be able to help you get your charges dismissed.
Penalties for Prostitution
First-time prostitution offenses in California are usually charged as misdemeanors. However, if this is your second or third offense, you may be facing a felony charge. Thanks to the increase of sting operations in Los Angeles and large cities, innocent citizens with no criminal history may find themselves accused and arrested for prostitution because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you were in the wrong place and have been mistaken for committing prostitution, your safest bet for avoiding penalties is the help of an experienced Los Angeles prostitution attorney.
Penalties for prostitution may include jail, probation, fines and fees, AIDS testing, community service, loss of employment (for those with occupational licenses) and public humiliation. Those who are convicted of prostitution or sex crimes may find their relationships damaged and their reputation destroyed. When you choose to hire a lawyer from our firm, you are gaining a partner who will give you the respect you need.
