About Prostitution and Pimping Charges

Orange County Prostitution Attorney

Prostitution, despite the fact that it has been carried on for centuries, is still against the law in California. Even though both parties involved are willing participants, both can face punishment. Prostitution means engaging in sexual intercourse or lewd acts in exchange for money or other compensation. Pimping, or pandering, means soliciting customers for prostitutes or recruiting prostitutes for customers. Undercover police may pretend to be prostitutes, pimps or customers in order to gain evidence and make an arrest. If you have been charged with a crime related to prostitution, it is vital that you get the advice of an Orange County criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

Defense Lawyer in Orange County

There are a number of ways one could be charged with solicitation of prostitution. It isn't necessary that a sexual act takes place. All that is needed is a statement or action which shows an intention or a willingness to engage in such an act for pay, or a readiness to pay for such an act. When law enforcement carries out a "sting operation" an officer may go too far and induce a person to commit an offense which the person would not have been likely to commit. If this can be proven it is a valid defense on behalf of the defendant facing pimping or prostitution charges. Whatever the circumstances are, it takes an experienced and skilled prostitution and pimping defense lawyer to provide effective representation and innovative defense strategies in these types of cases.
