Representation from an Orange County Criminal Lawyer
In the state of California, there is very little tolerance for criminal acts that are associated with prostitution. Under §647 of the 2010 California Penal Code, this extends to include both those who engage in prostitution and those who participate in solicitation. These are all considered to be misdemeanors, however, the penalties are nothing to laugh at. For a first time conviction, you would be at risk of up to six months of incarceration and/or a monetary fine that extends up to $1000.
