I represent clients charged with all types of Sex crimes, including:
When you have been arrested for prostitution then you need to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can provide the best legal defense for a crime related to human trafficking.
If you offer to have sex for money or for anything of value, then you could be guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor. A second and third conviction could be enhanced to a Class A Misdemeanor, and a fourth conviction could be enhanced to a State Jail Felony. So depending on your priors, you could be sentenced from 1 day up to 2 years and/or a fine up to $10,000.00.
Sec. 43.02. PROSTITUTION. (a) A person commits an offense if the person knowingly offers or agrees to receive a fee from another to engage in sexual conduct. (c) An offense under Subsection (a) is a Class B misdemeanor, except that the offense is: (1) a Class A misdemeanor if the actor has previously been convicted one or two times of an offense under Subsection (a); or (2) a state jail felony if the actor has previously been convicted three or more times of an offense under Subsection (a).
