New Jersey Prostitution and Solicitation Defense Attorney

Prostitution and Solicitation Charges in New Jersey

New Jersey law states that an individual can be charged with prostitution if he or she performs a sexual act with an individual for money or other items of value. Solicitation, which is also referred to as promoting prostitution, is also illegal in New Jersey.

Promoting prostitution is defined by seven activities:

  • Managing, owing, or supervising a prostitution house or business
  • Purposely encouraging another individual to become a prostitute
  • Procuring an individual to carry out a sexual act for a patron
  • Soliciting an individual to seek services from a prostitute
  • Transporting an individual within New Jersey for the purpose of prostitution
  • Procuring an individual to work at a place of prostitution
  • Knowingly leasing a place that’s regularly used for the promotion of prostitution or prostitution

Individuals who are charged with promoting prostitution where a minor is involved could face between 10 to 20 years in prison. If you get arrested for prostitution or solicitation of prostitution, it can cause numerous problems. It can be an embarrassing experience, and it can end up on your permanent record, which can hinder your ability to get work, find housing, and get access to educational opportunities.

The laws regarding prostitution and solicitation in New Jersey are tough. The best course of action that individuals can take after being arrested for this type of charge is to contact a reputable New Jersey prostitution and solicitation defense attorney.

What are the Penalties for a Prostitution or Solicitation Conviction in New Jersey?

Individuals who are convicted of prostitution and solicitation could face up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines. In addition, any subsequent convictions could lead to fines of up to $10,000 and up to 18 months in prison. In New Jersey, you will have to register as a sex offender if you’re convicted of prostitution or solicitation, which means your record will be accessible to those in your community. A conviction for prostitution or solicitation may also lead to a suspended driver’s license.

Possible Defenses to Prostitution and Solicitation Charges

It’s important that those arrested for prostitution or solicitation say nothing to police officers until an attorney is present. Any statements that you make can be used against you in court.

While facing a prostitution or solicitation charge can be frustrating, it’s up to the prosecuting attorney to produce solid evidence showing the accused is guilty. During a prostitution or solicitation case, defense strategies that can be used include

It was a Forced Act
If an individual was forced to engage in a sexual act, it could be used as a valid defense.

There’s Not Enough Evidence
If the prosecuting attorney isn’t able to produce tangible proof, such as a recording, that shows the accused is guilty, the case may be dismissed for lack of evidence.

Entrapment
Entrapment is a possible defense against a prostitution charge in New Jersey. If law enforcement officials used unethical tactics during an undercover operation, and these actions resulted in an arrest for prostitution, it could be used as a plausible defense.

If you’re facing a prostitution or solicitation charge, contact our law firm. Our skilled legal team understands how to navigate through the New Jersey legal system and has extensive experience helping individuals fight prostitution and solicitation charges. Many first-time offenders can avoid jail time if they seek help from an attorney, and some individuals may be eligible for certain diversionary programs.

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.
