Defending Local and Out-of-State Clients Against All Types of Charges
Prostitution offenses are among the most commonly prosecuted crimes in South Jersey, especially in the vicinity of the Atlantic City casinos. The following are some of the most frequently used prostitution charges under New Jersey law:
- Soliciting prostitution: Local police departments often use sting operations to arrest alleged “johns” accused of seeking out the services of prostitutes.
- Engaging in prostitution: The police may also pose as potential customers in order to arrest people who are then accused of offering sexual services.
- Promoting prostitution: If you are accused of pimping or running a prostitution ring, you may be charged with promoting, a crime with particularly serious penalties.
If you are a resident of North Jersey, Pennsylvania or another state, and you have been arrested for soliciting prostitution while visiting the Jersey Shore, it is important to hire a local defense attorney who is familiar with the local courts, procedures and statutes.
