Police Sting Operations To Catch People For Solicitation of Prostitution in St. Louis, MO
A good number of the arrests made each year in the state of Missouri for solicitation of prostitution are the result of a “sting operation” set up by the police. One of the main outlets used in these operations is CraigsList. The police will post an advertisement in the Personals section and pose as a fictional prostitute. Emails are exchanged, and arrangements for a meeting are set. But once you reach the predetermined spot, the only person to meet you is an officer.
WE WANT TO GET THE CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
But the last thing you want to do is treat the St. Louis solicitation (or patronizing) of prostitution ticket as if it were no big deal. This type of charge is considered to be a Class B Misdemeanor (which comes with of a potential sentence of up to six (6) months of jail and a fine of $500). And the long term consequences of a solicitation charge on your record could not be much worse. Any time you apply for a job or try to rent an apartment, the potential employer or landlord will run a criminal background check (and likely screen you out as a candidate as a result).

There is, however, a much better route to take!! We want to get the ticket reduced to something minor (such as “littering,” an infraction that does not even show up on your permanent record). This is a far better outcome than the negative consequences described above!!
