Reno Defense Attorney for Prostitution Charges
Prostitution/Solicitation of Prostitution
The proposition of an exchange of monetary funds for sexual acts is illegal in Washoe County and the Reno area and can be punishable up to six months in jail and possible fines up to $1,000.00. If you are a first time offender you may be able to evade these fines and penalties in exchange for community service, a possible probationary period as well as an educational class on prostitution in light of jail time.
As a criminal defense lawyer in Washoe County, I am extremely familiar with the details of a prostitution case and investigation. I will work diligently to protect you under Nevada law and your rights as a U.S. citizen.
Finding Guilt in a Reno Prostitution Case
If retained, I will fight the typical evidence that most prosecutors utilize which is circumstantial evidence. Most transactions between a prostitute and the alleged offender are rarely caught on tape and so the prosecutor has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty. Some other possible evidence that may be used against you would be whether the alleged prostitute was carrying condoms or a large sum of cash and even then, the prosecution must prove that the exchange took place at all. These factors are just a few examples of the types of evidence that can be brought against you but each case is unique and can have individual circumstances that determine the outcome of your case.
