Charged With Prostitution Or Solicitation? We Can Help You.
While an arrest on charges of prostitution or solicitation may appear straightforward at first, there are often important constitutional issues and police procedures involved that can lead to a dismissal or reduction of the charges against you.
Picking Apart The Evidence Of Your Case
If you were arrested on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute in a sting operation, what was said during your conversation with an undercover police officer? Often, undercover vice agents are electronically wired to record what is said. In many cases, however, the quality of the recording is so bad it’s impossible to determine what was really said.
If you are facing prostitution charges in connection with exotic dancing or an online escort service, how you were approached may determine if entrapment occurred or if the police even had probable cause to search your belongings or arrest you.

Plea Bargains – When Evidence Supports A Conviction
If there is very little question involving your guilt, a plea bargain may be in your best interests. Depending on your criminal record and the circumstances surrounding your arrest, we may be able to have the charges or sentence against you reduced. Additionally, we may be able to negotiate a disposition to keep your record clean.
If appropriate, we will connect you with services to help facilitate a favorable resolution and help you move forward with your life. For those arrested on suspicion of solicitation, this may mean the difference between probation and being sentenced to jail.
Additionally, if you’re divorced and have custody or visitation rights with your children, a plea to a lesser charge is preferable to a conviction for solicitation or prostitution. You may be required to seek counseling and remain on probation for a period of time. The Department of Health and Human Services may want to conduct an investigation into your household.
