Getting convicted of
soliciting a prostitute will result in not less than 15 days in jail if it’s your first
offense, and not less than 180 days if it’s your fourth conviction.
A fourth conviction also increases the charges from a class 1 misdemeanor
to a class 5 felony, which can result in additional long-term consequences.
While there are many legal tools available to the police when seeking to
arrest individuals for the
crime of prostitution, in some cases they have been found to have over reached
their authority and are also susceptible to errors through the course
of their investigation and arrest, which can then be challenged in court.
From entrapment to inaccurate reports to failing to read you your Miranda
rights, inappropriate police practices can substantially impact the case
against you. The Firm will do a thorough investigation of each case, identify
any potential errors or weaknesses in the case and will work diligently
on your behalf to seek a favorable outcome against charges of prostitution
