Houston Prostitution Defense Attorneys

In Texas, criminal charges pertaining to prostitution may be prosecuted as either misdemeanors or felonies depending upon the circumstances of the case and the nature of the crime which is alleged to have been committed. Unfortunately, there are a number of ways that a simple misunderstanding or assumptions based upon a woman’s manner of dress might lead to wrongful accusations of prostitution. Moreover, prostitution is frequently targeted by sting operations, and certain actions might constitute entrapment, which may lead to the dismissal of your case.

If you or someone you love is facing prostitution charges, it is important that you understand that you have a right to vigorous legal representation. A skilled and experienced attorney can help you to present a strong argument for your case and to challenge the case made by the prosecution. Contact the Houston prostitution defense lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., at 713-222-0400 to discuss your case.

Types of Prostitution Charges

Prostitution is sometimes referred to as “the oldest profession”, so it should be no surprise that there are a number of different crimes associated with it. For example, the kind of charges that one might face accused of prostituting him or herself are distinguished from those which one might face for furnishing prostitutes to clients. The following are some of the charges, along with their classification:

  • Prostitution – Class B Misdemeanor
  • Promotion of Prostitution – Class A Misdemeanor
  • Aggravated Promotion of Prostitution – Third Degree Felony
  • Compelling Prostitution – Second Degree Felony

Regardless of the specific charge you are facing, you remain innocent until proven guilty and are strongly advised to speak with a compassionate and tenacious Houston prostitution defense lawyer as soon as possible.
