Although prostitution is not deemed to be a violent crime, it is still strongly enforced by law enforcement, which aggressively pursues sting operations and other methods to catch not only the prostitutes, but their “johns”. If you find yourself caught up in a sting, save yourself embarrassment and the stress of a conviction by contacting a criminal defense attorney in Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks or Agoura Hills, who can help you fight your charges.
Although prostitution is a misdemeanor and charged as disorderly conduct, crimes related to it, such as pandering or pimping, are charged as felonies. Internet stings are often set up by law enforcement to obtain solicitations for prostitution, which can easily lead to charges. If done with an alleged minor, the charges can become quite serious, leading to a much more severe offense involving sex crimes with minors.
