Q&A Series: Prostitution

I got caught up in a prostitution sting – what should I do?

If they haven’t already attempted, the police will want to take a statement from you. But remember you cannot be compelled to provide a statement. In most situations, you are better off speaking first with an experienced criminal defense attorney.

In order to get a guilty verdict, the State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused intentionally engaged in prostitution, or hired or offered or agreed to hire someone to engage in sexual penetration or sexual contact. The age of the person being solicited can determine the severity of the charges, and could require predatory offender registration.
