What To Do If You Are Charged With Prostitution in St. Louis, MO
If you receive a citation for prostitution in or around St. Louis, then the first thing you should do is call us. Prostitution is a Class B Misdemeanor (which carries a potential sentence of up to six (6) months of jail time and a fine of $500). What most people end up doing is nothing more than pleading guilty. They figure (incorrectly) that they have no other choice, and that there is not anything else they can do. But that is not true!!
WE WANT TO GET THE PROSTITUTION CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
The vast majority of individuals who are charged with prostitution are female. And the criminal justice system is not exactly kind to those who are arrested on this kind of offense. As a result, most women are given less protection and end up with their rights being trampled on. In the state of Missouri, prostitution is considered a Class B Misdemeanor (which means that the court can potentially sentence you to six (6) months in jail and a fine of $500). And if you have already plead guilty to prostitution twice before, then a third arrest will raise the charge to a Class D Felony (which comes with up to four (4) years of jail).
