What is Prostitution?

Prostitution commonly refers to exchanging sexual services for money or other forms of compensation. In the state of Florida, prostitution is considered a criminal offense. Both the act of offering sexual services for money and the act of paying for sexual services are illegal. Prostitution laws are in place to maintain public order and protect the well-being of society.

What are the Penalties for Prostitution in Sarasota?

If you are charged with prostitution in Florida, you could face serious consequences that may have a lasting impact on your life. The penalties for prostitution-related offenses can include:

  • Misdemeanor Charges: Prostitution is typically classified as a misdemeanor offense. You could face fines, mandatory community service, and probation if convicted.
  • Enhanced Penalties: Repeated offenses may result in enhanced penalties, including longer probation periods and increased fines.
  • Criminal Record: A prostitution conviction can leave you with a permanent criminal record, affecting future employment opportunities, housing options, and more.
  • Public Humiliation: Prostitution cases often attract media attention, leading to potential public humiliation and damage to your reputation.
  • Driver's License Suspension: In certain cases, your driver's license may be suspended upon conviction, making it difficult to commute and maintain your daily routine.

Defenses Against Prostitution Charges

Some common defenses against prostitution charges include:

  • Lack of Proof: The prosecution must establish beyond a reasonable doubt that you actually engaged in prostitution. Our legal team can scrutinize the evidence to identify any weaknesses in the case.
  • Entrapment: If law enforcement officers induced or coerced you into committing the crime, we can argue that you were entrapped and violated your rights.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, mistaken identity can occur, leading to false accusations. We can thoroughly investigate the circumstances to establish your innocence.
  • Violation of Rights: If your constitutional rights are violated during the arrest or investigation, evidence gathered may be inadmissible in court, weakening the prosecution's case.
  • Lack of Intent: Prostitution charges require proof of intent to exchange sexual services for compensation. If this element is not met, we can build a defense based on lack of intent.
