Sex Crimes Prostitution

Sex Crimes such as Prostitution are crimes that we occasionally read about in the paper or see on the news whenever there is a law enforcement sting. Prostitution, unlike almost other crimes, criminalizes the actions of both the prostitute and the individual paying to see the prostitute. Child Porn The Sex Crime of Prostitution can be found in Title 18 of the Pennsylvania crimes code under section 5902. That statute essentially states that a person is guilty of this crime if he or she: works at a establishment that is in existence to offer sexual favors in return for money (such as certain massage parlors) or has sex with individuals as part of a business or is hired to engage in sex with others. Prostitution is graded almost always as a Misdemeanor of the third degree and therefore punishable by a maximum of one year in prison. However, if the accused has been convicted of this crime two times before, then the crime is graded as a Misdemeanor of the second or if it is a fourth lifetime offense then it is a Misdemeanor of the first degree and therefore punishable by a maximum of five years in prison.

What are the defenses to the crime of prostitution? One of the main defenses to this crime is that if sex did occur between two people, it did not occur because any money was exchanged.  Indecent exposure Make sure to contact an experienced Sex Crimes attorney if you have been charged with or are being investigated for the crime of prostitution. Finally, this crime is occasionally graded as a felony of the third degree if the person who committed the offense knew that he or she was HIV positive or promoted the prostitution of someone that he or she knew was a minor
