  • The prostitute

  • The pimp (if a man) or madam (if a woman)

Legal Defenses Against Prostitution Charges

A prostitution case is generally very defensible given that law enforcement officials often use entrapment and other illegal methods to gather the evidence needed for a successful prostitution prosecution.

A few examples of the defense strategies we may use in defending prostitution cases include:

  • The police engaged in entrapment

  • You are factually innocent
  • You did not harbor the specific intent to hire a prostitute
  • You did not harbor the specific intent to prostitute yourself
  • Mistaken identity
