Dallas Prostitution Defense Lawyer

Facing Prostitution Allegations in Texas?

Classified as a crime of public indecency, prostitution is viewed negatively throughout the general public law enforcement community. Specialized sex crime units focus extensive resources on stamping out prostitution in their communities and work zealously to arrest, prosecute, and convict those who stand accused.

Whether you have been charged with solicitation or promotion of prostitution, you need to take steps toward protecting yourself from harsh criminal penalties and an unsavory criminal record. At the Mathur Law Offices, P.C., our Dallas sex crime defense attorneys represent clients facing all prostitution charges.

Varying Prostitution Charges

Prostitution
Under § 43.02 of the Texas Penal Code, a person commits prostitution when they agree or solicit sexual conduct in exchange for a fee. A standard prostitution charge is a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000, up to 180 days imprisonment, or both. Charges and penalties will also be elevated if certain aggravating circumstances are involved, including prior convictions. If the person solicited is a minor, then charges will be elevated to a felony.

Promotion of Prostitution & Aggravated Promotion of Prostitution
In line with national efforts to stamp out prostitution by targeting those who profit from the unlawful activity, Texas enforces harsh penalties for those accused of promoting prostitution. Anyone who profits from a prostitution transaction or who solicits others to engage in prostitution will be charged with a Class A misdemeanor. Penalties include fines up to $4,000, up to one year in jail, or both. When a person is found to be involved in an enterprise that uses two or more prostitutes, aggravated promotion of prostitution, a third-degree felony, will be charged.

Compelling Prostitution
Compelling prostitution is an elevated charge that involves causing another to commit prostitution by force, threat, or fraud, or when a minor under the age of 18 in involved. A second-degree felony, compelling prostitution is punishable by a term of imprisonment from 2 to 20 years and up to $10,000 in fines. Anyone facing this charge needs legal representation.
