Prostitution Lawyers NYC | NYC Prostitution Defense Attorneys

By Spodek Law Group | September 2, 2016

At Spodek Law Group, our dedicated and experienced team of attorneys, led by the relentless Attorney Todd Spodek, stands firmly by your side in the face of prostitution-related criminal charges. Whether you’re accused of soliciting or engaging in prostitution, our seasoned lawyers possess the deep legal understanding and expertise to protect your rights and combat wrongful criminal accusations.

Unraveling the Complexities of New York Prostitution Laws

New York prostitution laws target various offenses that arise from the illicit act of engaging, or agreeing to engage, in sexual conduct in exchange for money. As a Class B misdemeanor, prostitution offenses carry potentially severe consequences. In addition to the core crime of prostitution, New York criminalizes other related activities, such as promoting prostitution, compelling prostitution, and sex trafficking.

Penal Code Offense Classification
230.00 Prostitution Class B Misdemeanor
230.02 Patronizing a person for prostitution Class A Misdemeanor
230.03 Prostitution in a school zone Class A Misdemeanor
230.04 Patronizing a person for prostitution in the 3rd degree Class A Misdemeanor

Strategic Defense for Prostitution Charges

Facing prostitution charges can be a daunting and emotionally charged experience. At Spodek Law Group, our proficient NYC prostitution defense lawyers employ a strategic and thorough approach to dismantle the prosecution’s case. We meticulously examine every aspect of the arrest, focusing on potential instances of entrapment, invasion of privacy, or other illegal or discriminatory investigative tactics that may have been employed.

Debating the Complexities of Prostitution

While prostitution remains illegal in 49 US states, a myriad of arguments continues to circulate, debating the decriminalization and regulation of the practice. Advocates for decriminalization argue that such a move could protect sex workers, reduce the burden on law enforcement, and generate revenue for states. However, the prevailing American sentiment still views prostitution as an immoral and degrading act, keeping it illegal in the vast majority of the country.

When prostitution occurs within a school zone, the charges and penalties escalate considerably. A conviction for prostitution in a school zone may lead to increased jail time, fines, or both, depending on the specific jurisdiction. Our seasoned defense attorneys at Spodek Law Group can provide invaluable guidance and representation in these delicate situations, crafting a robust defense strategy tailored to the unique circumstances of your case.

    • Expertise in promoting prostitution charges: Our skilled legal team also tackles cases involving promoting prostitution, a crime that encompasses a wide range of activities aimed at facilitating and profiting from prostitution.
    • Aggressive defense strategies: At Spodek Law Group, led by the tenacious Attorney Todd Spodek, we are dedicated to fighting for your rights with unyielding determination. Our passionate team will meticulously scrutinize every aspect of your case and craft an aggressive defense strategy tailored to your unique situation.
    • Extensive legal expertise: Our seasoned attorneys at Spodek Law Group possess an in-depth understanding of the law, making them an invaluable asset when facing the complexities of the legal system. We have the knowledge and experience to navigate the intricacies of New York prostitution laws and effectively defend your rights.
    • Compassionate, client-focused representation: At Spodek Law Group, we understand that being accused of a crime can be emotionally taxing and overwhelming. Our attorneys approach each case with empathy and understanding, prioritizing your well-being and relentlessly advocating for your best interests.
    • Proven track record of success: With a long history of successful outcomes, Spodek Law Group has demonstrated its ability to effectively handle even the most challenging legal situations. Trust our team to provide the expert representation you need to protect your rights and achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

Defenses Against Prostitution Charges

When facing prostitution charges, it is crucial to have an experienced and skilled legal team on your side. At Spodek Law Group, we employ various defenses to challenge the prosecution’s case, including:

      • Lack of evidence: Our attorneys will thoroughly examine the evidence presented by the prosecution and work to expose any weaknesses or inconsistencies that may lead to a dismissal or reduction of charges.
      • Entrapment: In some cases, law enforcement may have used illegal or unethical tactics to induce an individual into committing a crime they would not have otherwise committed. If our team can prove entrapment, your charges may be dismissed.
      • Mistaken identity: We will work diligently to establish a solid alibi or present evidence that demonstrates you were not the person involved in the alleged crime, potentially leading to a dismissal of charges.
      • Challenging the agreement: In cases involving patronizing a person for prostitution, our skilled lawyers will meticulously investigate whether a clear agreement or understanding of payment for sex was ever established. If the prosecution cannot prove this, your case may be dismissed or significantly reduced.

Don’t Face Prostitution Charges Alone: Choose Spodek Law Group
