Lawrenceville Prostitution Lawyer
Charged with Prostitution in Gwinnett County?
Prostitution occurs when a person commits an act of sexual intercourse, or offers to commit the act, or agrees to have sexual intercourse with another person in exchange for monetary compensation. While prostitution may be a crime in virtually every state including Georgia, it is considered a misdemeanor and penalty for prostitution is not as severe as sexual assault crimes like rape or sex with a minor.
Prostitution charges can be filed under a variety of circumstances. Most notable are prostitutes who can be seen on the streets, waiting for passers-by who may be interested in paying for sexual intercourse. This type of solicitation sex crime also occurs in designated locations such as hotels, and the owners of these establishments can also be charged with providing a place for prostitution. This is illegal and although the penalty is a misdemeanor and is lighter than felony crimes, for example, there are penalties that extend beyond the criminal courts. If you or someone you know has been charged with prostitution, please contact Attorney Booker at the firm soon to discuss your options for defense.
