What Types of Charges Could I Be Facing?

Both prostitution and solicitation are considered illegal in the state of Ohio. In some cases, an individual may be forced to register as a sex offender for committing such a crime. Not only that, but these types of crimes often carry severe social stigmas, impacting one's reputation for years to come.

There are numerous charges an individual can face, including:

  • Compelling, promoting or soliciting a prostitute
  • Pimping or pandering
  • Child prostitution
  • Loitering for the purpose of prostitution
  • Engaging in prostitution while knowing you have HIV

Aggressive Cleveland Prostitution Defense Attorneys

Even if you did not engage in any sexual acts, you could still be charged with a sex crime. All you have to do is stop, attempt to stop, or engage in conversation with an individual regarding prostitution. You can be charged for accepting or giving goods, money, or other items in exchange for sexual acts, even if they aren't committed. If charged with solicitation, you will likely be facing a third-degree felony, which can carry up to five years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. If the individual involved is 18 or younger, the charges and penalties will increase.

Whatever type of prostitution or solicitation crime you are facing, you need to retain legal counsel. Reach out to our firm today.
