Massachusetts Prostitution Defense Lawyer

While prostitution is illegal in most states, there is often much debate about the legality of the act of performing sexual intercourse and other acts for money. Even though the practice is legal in many countries and in some parts of the U.S, Massachusetts law carries strong penalties for individuals who are accused of the crime.

Persons who are accused of prostitution may face incarceration, fines, and other punishment if they are convicted by the court. If you or someone you love stands accused of prostitution or another sex-related crime, it is important to have an experienced, responsive, and thorough attorney on your side.

Reasons for Prostitution Charges

An individual may be charged with prostitution if they:

  • Knowingly perform sexual acts in exchange for money
  • Attempt to entice another individual into paying money for sexual services
  • Procuring a person to enter a place with the intent to perform sexual intercourse for hire
  • Enticing a minor into prostitution
  • Attempting to coerce another individual into performing sexual acts for money
  • Owning a place used for the purposes of performing sexual acts for hire

Persons who knowingly provide a place for individuals to procure sexual acts in exchange for money may face prostitution charges, even if they never performed a sexual act themselves. Although the act may include consensual intercourse between two adults, if money is exchanged for sexual services, the act is considered a crime by the state.
