Orlando Criminal Defense Lawyer
Prostitution and Solicitation are generally terms that are used interchangeably to mean the same thing. Prostitution refers to the act of selling one’s body for the purpose of engaging in a sexual act. It must be noted that prostitution is not simply the act of intercourse for money, but can include any number of sex acts in exchange for financial or property gain. In addition to the basic definition of prostitution, a person can be prosecuted by the courts for the solicitation of another person (pimping), for operating or assisting in the operation of a business where prostitution takes place; and/or causing, forcing of another individual to engage in prostitution.
Prostitution is not a felony, so it carries a minor sentence, which is why repeat offenses are common among the prostituting population. Prostitutes are typically arrested, booked, spend the night in jail, and are released. Generally, the punishment for prostitution is a minor prison sentence (depending on the number of offenses and/or arrests), a fine, and/or probation. Sentencing for prostitution is left to the discretion of the District Attorney and the law enforcement system. There isn’t usually a large punishment sentenced, or much attention given to prostitution unless further crimes are associated with it, due to the nature of the crime, and the fact that prisons are overflowing with more serious offenders.
