Charged With Solicitation? They May Not Have A Case.
It is not uncommon for an individual to be accused of prostitution when he or she was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. We will take the time to listen to your story and assess the charges brought against you. We will find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and leverage those to protect your interests.
Prostitution charges can stem from a variety of circumstances, including:
Loitering for purposes of prostitution — To be convicted, the prosecution must prove that you were intentionally loitering or lingering in the area looking to pick up prostitution job. We will attack this argument, building a case that you had other intentions.
Agreeing to engage in an act of prostitution — It is illegal to make an agreement or contract to provide sexual services in exchange for reimbursement or payment. The prosecution must prove, though, that you actually acted upon this agreement.
Pimping — We will aggressively confront charges of pimping or offering out another’s sexual services for money.
We are also equipped to handle cases involving alleged Craigslist solicitation. We have the technical understanding to unravel some of the additional complexities that come with this, including stalking and electronic harassment issues.
Our lawyers also routinely defend cases of indecent exposure, indecent conduct, solicitation, disorderly conduct and other related prosecution charges. We often represent johns or individuals accused of hiring the services of an alleged prostitute.
