Las Vegas Prostitution Charges

Get Defense from Skilled Las Vegas Sex Crime Attorneys

In Las Vegas, prostitution is criminalized and entails severe penalties. It is defined as offering to engage in sexual acts in exchange for money or another form of payments. Sometimes, police officers and law enforcement officials will perform “sting operations” to lure or bait potential patrons and arrest them. There are many different tactics that officers will use to entrap someone who may have committed this crime and uncover sufficient evidence.

Fighting charges of this magnitude requires skilled and aggressive legal representation. That is why you should contact Oronoz, Ericsson & Gaffney, LLC at (702) 904-8858 right away. We know every aspect of the law and how the judicial system works in Las Vegas. We can help you during every phase of your case.

Tipping the Scales of Justice in Your Favor

Officers, prosecutors, and opposing counsel will use every opportunity to not only recover evidence, however circumstantial it may be, and hammer in their arguments to secure a conviction. The only concrete evidence may be an officer’s testimony and items recovered from the individuals’ vehicle, hotel room, or home. These are purely circumstantial and cannot prove that a crime occurred.

A criminal conviction for prostitution is a misdemeanor offense and carries numerous penalties.

These penalties include:

  • Up to $1,000 in fines
  • Probation
  • Community service
  • Jail sentence up to 6 months

Prosecutors often use the circumstantial evidence to charge someone with other crimes, such as trespassing.

We do everything in our power that your case holds no weight in the court of law and draw from our experience to take the most suitable route to your defense.
