Top Prostitution Defense Attorneys in New Jersey

Top Prostitution Defense Attorneys in New Jersey

New Jersey Police officers in many municipalities are notorious for conducting prostitution sting and “quality of life” sweeps. The net created from such efforts often results in the arrest and filing of charges against both patrons (a.k.a. Johns) and prostitutes. Irrespective of the method by which you were charged with prosecution in Camden or other counties, our criminal firm is ready to defend you.

Prostitution Charges in Winslow and Other Municipalities Across New Jersey

Even though Camden is unquestionably the busiest venue in the county for prostitution charges, police throughout the county, including in Winslow Township, are also active in filing offenses under N.J.S.A. 2C:34-1. This violation gets triggered whenever “prostitution” is attempted or committed by a person who is: (1) a patron; (2) a provider of the sexual activity; or (3) promotes these activities. The term “prostitution” is defined in the New Jersey Criminal Code as “sexual activity with another person in exchange for something of economic value, or the offer or acceptance of an offer to engage in sexual activity in exchange for something of economic value.” “Sexual activity” can refer to a range of activities, including genital, anal or oral intercourse, masturbation, touching of the genitals, buttocks, or female breasts, and other sexual conduct. The four elements of this offense are as follows:

  1. either the making or acceptance of an offer;
  2. to engage in sexual relations;
  3. in exchange for money or something else of value; and
  4. with a purpose to perform this conduct.

Degrees of Prostitution and Solicitation Charges in New Jersey

Prostitution is a disorderly persons offense in cases where it involves personally offering sexual favors in exchange for something of economic value. These activities are elevated to a fourth-degree crime when the conviction represents a second or third violation. It is a third-degree offense to commit a fourth or subsequent offense in this kind. It is a second-degree crime to knowingly take part in prostitution with a minor child under eighteen (18) years of age.

Penalties for Conviction of Prostitution and Solicitation in New Jersey

A disorderly persons offense for prostitution carries a fine of up to $1,000 and up to six months in the county jail. Fourth-degree prosecution can result in up to 18 months in state prison and fine as high as $10,000. The maximum penalties for third-degree prostitution include a $15,000 fine and 5 years in prison. Second-degree prosecution carries a potential fine of $150,000 and 5-10 years behind bars. In addition, a six months driver’s license suspension can be imposed if a motor vehicle was part of the commission of prostitution.

Prostitution is defined as engaging in sexual activity with another person in exchange for something of economic value, or offering to engage in sexual activity with another person in exchange for something of economic value. N.J.S.A. 2C:34-1(a). Solicitation is defined as offering to pay someone else to engage in sexual activity, or offering to pay someone else to engage in sexual activity on your behalf, or requesting that someone else engage in sexual activity on your behalf for payment, or requesting that someone else engage in sexual activity on your behalf for payment by another person. N.J.S.A. 2C:34-1(b).

Prostitution and solicitation are considered disorderly persons offenses under New Jersey law and are punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000 if convicted of a disorderly persons offense charge under N.J.S.A 2C:34-1(a) or (b). If you have been charged with prostitution or solicitation as a result of an undercover police sting operation, you may be charged with a fourth degree crime which is punishable by up to 18 months in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 if convicted under N.J.S .A 2C:34-1(c) or (d). If you have been charged with prostitution as the result of being involved with sex trafficking, you may be charged with a second degree crime which is punishable by five to ten years imprisonment and a fine of up to $150,000 if convicted under N .J .S .A 2C:34-1(e) or (f).

In addition, anyone who has been convicted of prostitution will be required to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law if they are deemed sexually violent predators by the court system based on an evaluation conducted by the Adult Diagnostic Treatment Center located at Avenel State Prison following their conviction for prostitution . The registration requirements are outlined below:

  • If you have been convicted of prostitution one time , you will be required to register as a sex offender every year for 15 years;
  • If you have been convicted of prostitution two times , you will be required to register as a sex offender every year for 25 years; and/or
  • If you have been convicted three times , you will be required to register as a sex offender every year for life; however after 25 years without any additional criminal convictions related either directly or indirectly related to prostitution , the registration requirement may be terminated upon application through the court system . However , there is no guarantee that this application will be granted . Therefore it is important that anyone who has been arrested on multiple occasions for prostitution consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney prior t o pleading guilty t o any charges related t o this offense so that they can discuss all available options including seeking termination from Megan’s Law after 25 years without any additional criminal convictions related either directly or indirectly related t o prostitution .

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.
