An Aggressive Defense Against Prostitution Charges

Our state of California does not take the act of prostitution lightly. As a result, the consequences of either buying or selling sexual acts can be more severe than you imagined. When you are facing these kinds of charges, you want to have an attorney who knows the gravity of these charges and is prepared to fight them. Here at Yeretsian Law, we have extensive experience in defending our clients, which can act as your advantage in your case.

Sentences For Prostitution

The consequences for a prostitution charge depends on how many previous convictions you already have. Here is a quick breakdown of the charges, based on which conviction you are facing:

  • First conviction: up to six months in jail, plus a $1,000 fine
  • Second conviction: an additional 45 days in jail, plus a fine
  • Third conviction: a minimum of 90 days in jail, plus the consequences of the previous two tiers

In addition to these charges, you could also lose your license for up to six months. In addition to the planned charges of a conviction, there are also side consequences to these charges. A prostitution charge on your record could keep you from holding any kind of job within the government. There have also been some cases where a person also loses their custody or visitation rights over their children.

Defending Against These Charges

Our firm takes the time needed to understand all the details of your case, so we can look for the best possible defense for you. There are several common defenses to this case, including:

  • Entrapment
  • Lack of evidence
  • No payment was exchanged
  • No one made an agreement for sex
  • You have been mistaken for someone else

Our team knows what it takes to beat your charges, and we are prepared to negotiate your sentencing to reduce the lasting consequences in your life.
