Staten Island Prostitution Lawyers

You might have never thought that you would have to look for Staten Island prostitution lawyers, but you may have now found yourself in exactly this type of situation. The truth is that many people who are arrested for prostitution-related charges are good, law-abiding citizens who might have never been arrested for anything in the past.

If you are facing prostitution-related charges, however, it is important to understand the gravity of the situation. This is not something that you’re going to want to ignore or try to handle on your own. It also is not something that you will want to trust a regular criminal lawyer with; instead, you will want an attorney who has experience in handling these types of sensitive charges.

Causes of Being Arrested for Prostitution

It can be easier to be arrested for prostitution than you think. For one thing, if you are working as a prostitute, you have to worry about being turned in by ordinary citizens who might be suspicious about what you are up to. You also have to worry about sting operations in which law enforcement officers go out and solicit prostitutes in an effort to arrest them.

There are many ways that you can get in trouble for soliciting prostitution as well. Again, sting operations are frequently set up in an effort to arrest those who are looking to solicit prostitutes. Additionally, you have to worry about being caught while soliciting a prostitute, either because a regular citizen turns you in or because an undercover officer might witness the behavior.

Sometimes, there are much more in-depth operations in place. In some cases, law enforcement spends months putting together sting operations in an effort to catch sex rings or to do an overall crackdown on prostitution in the city. If you get caught in the crosshairs of one of these types of operations, you could wind up being arrested in the process, even if it’s your first time working as a prostitute or soliciting one.

Penalties for a Prostitution Conviction in Staten Island

In New York, prostitution is a class B misdemeanor. If you are convicted of prostitution in the state, you could face up to three months in jail and/or a fine of up to $500. In addition to having to pay pricey fines and potentially risking your freedom, you also have to worry about the long-time stigma that can go along with having a charge of this nature on your criminal record.

If you are convicted of patronizing a prostitute, which is a class A misdemeanor, you could face up to a year in prison and/or up to a $1,000 fine. If the prostitute was younger than 14 years of age, you could be convicted of a class E felony and could face two to five years in prison.

There are various other criminal charges that you could be facing related to prostitution. Allowing prostitution to go on in your home, business or any other place that you have control of can come with a fine and a potential jail sentence, for example, as can working as a “pimp.”

What to Do if You’re Arrested for Prostitution in Staten Island

Whether you are being accused of working as a prostitute or hiring one, you should take the situation very seriously. Not only do you have to worry about the social stigma that goes along with this type of conviction, but there are also severe consequences that you could be facing as well.

Hiring a lawyer is a good first step. First of all, your attorney will be familiar with New York laws regarding prostitution and can talk to you a little more about your case and your potential defense options. Plus, you will have a knowledgeable individual working by your side who can help you through this difficult process.

Depending on the specifics of your case, there are various defenses that might be used. For example, if you are accused of soliciting a prostitute who was under 14 years old at the time, your lawyer could argue that you were not aware of the person’s age.

Another potential argument for the solicitation of prostitution is entrapment. For example, if you were arrested as a part of an investigation, your lawyer might argue that you were actively encouraged by a member of law enforcement to participate in an act that you weren’t seeking out on your own in the first place.

Lawyers have various methods of defending their clients, but the best defense is going to depend on the specifics of your case. If you are looking for assistance with your legal situation, contact us today. Then, we can schedule a consultation to sit down and talk to you about your case, and our experienced attorneys can provide you with the best possible defense.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
