Long Island, NY Prostitution Lawyer

Trading Sexual Favors for Goods or Money

Prostitution is the exchange of sexual favors for goods or money. Because of the nature of this particular sex crime, the punishments handed out with a conviction can be very serious, particularly for those who have prior convictions. The punishments include jail time, monetary fines, probation, court enforced counseling, or community service. While prostitution is considered a Class B misdemeanor, punishable with up to 3 months in jail, the forceful intimidation of another individual into prostitution is considered a felony offense, carrying with it felony level punishments such as years of prison time. If you have been accused of an offense related to prostitution, you should contact a Long Island, NY criminal defense attorney immediately.

Individuals arrested for prostitution are usually caught in an undercover or sting operation. In order to secure a conviction, law enforcement officers must catch an individual in the act of exchanging money for a promised sexual act. Officers must follow a strict set of protocol; otherwise any evidence gathered at the scene of the crime could be considered entrapment and may be thrown out of court. A skilled and knowledgeable defense attorney will be able to hold law enforcement to these protocols and ensure that no illegal ly obtained evidence is used against you in the court of law.
