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.
Understanding the Criminal Charges of Prostitution
If you are facing criminal charges of a
sex crime of this nature, it is highly encouraged that you do not hesitate to contact
an experienced and hard-hitting lawyer that you can trust. These are serious
offenses and without a proactive defense, you will find that you could
be facing serious life-altering penalties. There are many different defenses
that can be utilized to help protect your future, such as proving entrapment,
and by having an experienced attorney on your side, you will be able to
move forward in helping to build a case.
