What is Prostitution?

Prostitution is considered the exchange of sexual services for money, goods, or other valuable considerations. While some states have legalized or decriminalized certain aspects of prostitution, it remains illegal in the state of Illinois. Prostitution laws encompass a wide range of activities, including solicitation, pimping, and running a brothel. These charges can result in very serious legal consequences, making it necessary to have a knowledgeable prostitution defense attorney by your side.

What are the Penalties for Prostitution in Illinois?

The penalties for prostitution in Illinois can be severe and vary based on the specific charges and circumstances. Generally, prostitution-related offenses are categorized as misdemeanors, but they can escalate to felony charges under certain conditions. The potential consequences include:

  • Misdemeanor Prostitution: A first-time prostitution offense is typically charged as a Class A misdemeanor. This can result in fines, court-mandated counseling, community service, and a lasting criminal record.
  • Promoting Prostitution: Individuals who facilitate or profit from prostitution, such as pimps or those operating brothels, can face felony charges. Convictions may lead to significant fines, lengthy imprisonment, and a mark on a criminal record.
  • Aggravated Prostitution: If an individual commits prostitution near a school or in a residential area, the offense may be elevated to an aggravated charge, carrying harsher penalties upon conviction.

It's important to note that a prostitution conviction can have far-reaching consequences beyond legal penalties. It can damage your reputation, impact your employment prospects, and strain personal relationships.

Defenses Against Prostitution Charges

Our prostitution defense attorney understands that every case is unique, and we explore all possible avenues to fight the charges against you. Some potential defenses include:

  • Lack of Evidence: The prosecution must prove your involvement in the alleged prostitution-related activities beyond a reasonable doubt. If there is insufficient evidence linking you to the offense, we can challenge the case's credibility.
  • Unlawful Search and Seizure: If law enforcement violated your Fourth Amendment rights during an arrest or search, evidence collected may be inadmissible in court. We thoroughly examine police procedures to ensure your rights are not violated.
  • Entrapment: If law enforcement used tactics to induce you into committing a crime you wouldn't have otherwise committed, we can build an entrapment defense to challenge the charges.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, individuals are wrongfully accused due to mistaken identity. We investigate all aspects of the case to establish a solid alibi or provide evidence that counters the accusations.
