Palm Beach Prostitution Defense Lawyer
Understanding Your Charges
When a sexual act is offered and/ or performed in exchange for money it is generally classified as prostitution. Cases involving charges of prostitution can be criminally implicating for the person providing sexual acts in return for money, as well for the person receiving the sexual acts as a favor for the money given to the cause. Like other sex crime offenses in the state of Florida, if you are charged and found guilty of prostitution, you will be required to register as a national sex offender - a label that is openly accessible for viewing by the public. First-time prostitution offenses will be penalized differently than second offenses and beyond. Oftentimes, first offenses of prostitution or solicitation of prostitution will be charged as a misdemeanor offense and will result in jail time of less than a year. Mandatory imprisonment will be required of those who have received charges in the past.
