Sex Crimes: Prostitution
Prostitution laws in California state that anyone who makes an agreement with someone to engage in lewd conduct or to engage in prostitution is guilty of disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. A typical prostitution transaction may involve charges against the provider of sexual services (prostitution), the person paying for those services (solicitation of prostitution), or any middleman (for “pandering” or “pimping.”)
Prostitution is a misdemeanor and a conviction can be devastating. The stigma of a sexual related criminal record can damage a person’s reputation, career, or family life.
If you’re facing charges of prostitution or solicitation of prostitution in California, you need an aggressive, experienced, and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney.
