Charged with Prostitution in Miami, FL?
Miami Prostitution Defense Lawyer
There is a great amount of pressure on law enforcement to eradicate prostitution
and sex trafficking by "busting" prostitution establishments,
pimps and other involved individuals. If a police officer is undercover
the arrest may occur immediately upon agreement as to the price, or the
officer may wait intending to apprehend and shut down the entire prostitution ring.
Generally both the prostitute and the customer are arrested along with
anyone else who might be present and seem to the officer to be involved.
This can have disastrous consequences on an innocent bystander who happens
to be in the area. Regardless of your involvement or lack of involvement,
if you have been arrested on a prostitution charge you need an experienced
defense lawyer who is intimately familiar with the prosecution of these cases.
Federal Prostitution Charges
When a person under the age of 18 is transported across state lines for
the purpose of sexual acts, the situation will be addressed in federal
court. The sexual exploitation of children for prostitution or
human trafficking are matters of extreme interest to federal investigators, particularly
in the Miami area.
If you are accused of a federal crime involving prostitution or human trafficking,
you must act quickly and engage the services of a high quality, aggressive
defense attorney with extensive trial experience. As the penalties in
federal court for these crimes are so extensive, immediate defense action
must be initiated. The penalties can range from 5 years in prison to up
to 30 years, with increased time for repeat offenders.
It is illegal to knowingly rent space to a prostitution activity, to run
such a business, to arrange for others to commit acts of prostitution,
and to recruit customers, or persons to engage in prostitution. Advertising
a completely innocent escort service may result in an undercover investigation.
Should an escort cross the line beyond providing pleasant companionship,
you may be facing a number of serious criminal charges, especially if
a minor is involved.
You could be charged in federal court if it is considered that you were
engaged in the certain types of human trafficking or exploiting children
through prostitution. The consequences of being convicted can range from
probation or time in a county jail to many years in federal prison for
each charge, based upon the exact details of the case.
