Georgetown, TX sex crimes defense attorney Leonard R. Morgan is experienced in defending individuals charged with prostitution or the promotion of prostitution.
Prostitution is a type of sex crime that involves the exchange of sexual acts for money, compensation, or gifts. It is illegal for people of any age to agree to or engage in sex for money.
People may also face prostitution charges for soliciting sex from a prostitute or for supporting or patronizing a prostitute, regardless of whether or not sexual activity took place. In the state of Texas both, the prostitute and patron can be charged with prostitution.
If you have been arrested for prostitution, you must consult with an experienced defense attorney right away. Although prostitution seems like a simple offense, it can lead to some penalties that can negatively impact your life in more ways than one.
In cases in which the allegation is that a person under the age of 18 was procured for prostitution, the damage to your life in a conviction can last a lifetime. The penalties could include up to up to 15 years in state prison and fines as high as $10,000.
Any case of criminal charges of prostitution must be addressed with skill, and with fast, effective defense action. My firm is committed to providing the level of legal counsel you will need to fight back in court.
