Prostitution Charges Can Ruin Reputations

If you get charged with and/or have been arrested for solicitation of prostitution or just prostitution itself, then you should be sure you hire the right criminal defense attorney who has the knowledge and experience to properly defend a case like this. Such charges might ruin your reputation, wreak havoc on your marriage, destroy your career, and even split up your family.

In the state of Colorado, prostitution is treated as a very serious crime. Selling and buying sex are both criminal offenses. One might be charged with prostitution should he or she perform, or just agree to perform, any sexual act with someone else in exchange for a kind of compensation, be it monetary or otherwise.

Prostitution Or Solicitation – Two Basic Charges

In terms of crimes of prostitution, you can essentially get charged in two different ways.

  • The first is to be either a prostitute or a solicitor of prostitution. If a woman solicits either sex or some sexual services, it might elicit a response from law enforcement agents who are undercover. Charges can be brought about when the woman either engages in the particular contact or explicitly solicits the funds.
  • The second is as a patron of prostitution, or a ‘john’. When an undercover law enforcement agent arranges someone to actually meet them in a place in order to solicit prostitution, where money is talked about or even exchanged, then a charge of soliciting prostitution might be brought.

The particular kind of prostitution charges that get filed in any case are contingent upon the specific circumstances surrounding the incident. Whether or not an individual has a prior criminal record involving prior prostitution convictions also comes into play. Some of the kinds of prostitution charges which might get filed can include:

Consequences Of Prostitution Or Solicitation Charges

Prostitution, as a class 3 misdemeanor, is punishable upon conviction by fines as much as $750 and six months of jail time. Anyone charged with prostitution is required to pay for their own mandatory HIV testing. Should positive results come back, that person might get charged with offenses more serious, such as prostitution with prior knowledge of HIV infection.

Soliciting is another class 3 misdemeanor. Soliciting charges are something that can get filed against a person who is accused of soliciting an individual for prostitution. However, they can also get filed for an individual accused of facilitating a meeting between two individuals with the intention of prostitution happening. If anyone has a minimum of two previous convictions for solicitation, then they might get charged instead with a class 6 felony. That’s punishable by fines as high as $100,000 and a year and a half in prison.

Pandering & Pimping

Pandering prostitution, based on the specifics of the case, might get filed as anywhere from a class 3 misdemeanor up to a class 5 felony. Pandering prostitution usually involves the use of threats or even force in order to coerce someone into prostitution.

Pimping is a class 3 felony that can mean fines as high as $750,000 and 24 years of prison time. Pimping is generally defined as the receiving of items of value which were earned thanks to prostitution.

Penalties for these kinds of prostitution crimes are possibly severe in the state of Colorado. Per C.R.S. 18-7-201 of the Colorado revised statutes, a first offense of soliciting prostitution is considered a class 3 misdemeanor.

Despite the legal consequences, the most serious of them might be the stain that sex crime convictions can leave on a person’s permanent record. There’s quite a social stigma involved when someone is charged with either solicitation or prostitution itself, and it can often result in loss of employment, friendships, and even marriage.

If you have been charged with prostitution or solicitation, then you need the best legal defense available. Make an appointment with Jeremy Loew today.
