Ft. Bend Prostitution Defense Attorney
Legal Assistance for Individuals Charged with Prostitution or Solicitation
Prostitution is generally defined as an offer to engage, an agreement to engage or the actual engagement of sexual conduct for money. The actual act of sex itself does not have to be performed to be charged with prostitution by the police. Merely agreeing to the sex act for an amount of money alone will be enough to be charged. In the state of Texas, prostitution can be either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the number of previous convictions for prostitution that particular person has. A first time prostitution offense is a class B misdemeanor, while a second prostitution is a class A misdemeanor. For an individual with three or more previous convictions, the charge will be a State Jail Felony.
For those who have been charged with prostitution or solicitation, it is strongly advised that they contact a Ft. Bend criminal defense attorney that will review the specifics of the case and fight for a favorable outcome to their case.
