Charged with Prostitution in Phoenix?

Prostitution is defined as engaging in sexual conduct with a person in exchange for money or an item of value such as food, drugs, shelter or clothing. Police use a variety of tactics to address prostitution, including having female officers pose as prostitutes or having undercover officers arrest people accused of soliciting a prostitute. If you have been arrested for a prostitution-related charge, contact an experienced Phoenix criminal defense attorney to discuss the charges you are facing and get a free evaluation of your case.

Prostitution Attorney serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe & the Entire Valley

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 or solicitation.

Contact a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer if you have been arrested on charges of prostitution or solicitation. Your first case evaluation is free of charge.

Client Reviews
We hired Trent Buckallew to represent our son following a second MIP ticket he received while in college. Mr. Buckallew kept us informed throughout all proceedings and helped us receive the satisfactory outcome of dropped charges in exchange for taking an alcohol awareness class. He was personable, knowledgeable and treated our small case with care and compassion. We would highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation. SR

I'm finally 100% clear of the problem that started our relationship. I cannot thank you enough for handling my case and expungement. I have a great sense of new beginnings and don't have to let my past affect my future. My freedom is priceless. TM
I appreciate everything you were able to accomplish for my father and will certainly be referring Mr. Buckallew to anyone I know who may be in need of an excellent criminal defense attorney. CM
Trent handled cases for me on two different occasions involving tickets for seat belt violations in commercial vehicles. Very happy with results. All charges dismissed. One case in Flagstaff and one case in Gilbert Court. KF
