Minneapolis Prostitution Attorney (Affordable)
Prostitution is the act of performing sexual acts in exchange for money. If you have been accused of prostitution you need an experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney to help you fight the charges.
Prostitution Charges (Explained)
When someone is arrested for prostitution, it is because the officer is arresting them for allegedly loitering for the purpose of soliciting sex from an individual. Many officers work undercover as johns and as prostitutes so they can arrest johns looking for sex from prostitutes.
Not all of these acts are indicative of prostitution. This is why a person can be falsely accused of prostitution.
In the case that an undercover officer is used, they pose as johns or as prostitutes and they look for key elements, such as the discussion of what acts will occur and how much it will cost. However, there can be problems with this process and the arrest procedure itself. If rights are violated, then the arrest can be deemed invalid. This type of undercover work can be considered entrapment.
All too often, officers go undercover --- and that can or cannot be considered entrapped, even if the accused feels like they have been entrapped. These types of sting operations are allowed for a variety of reasons without them being considered entrapment.
The key to this type of operation is what kind of non-verbal and verbal communication occurred. Your Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney will dig deeply to find out what happened right before the arrest and will also thoroughly examine the police report, as well as interview witnesses. All of this information is used to create a strategic defense for you. Revealing the facts and using the law as it pertains to those facts will help build a strong case.
Prostitution is a serious crime - insofar as it is considered a type of sexual offense. So, if you or someone you love has been arrested for as much the consequences can be rather harsh if convicted. If you have been accused of prostitution, you do have rights and the right to exercise them. To do this, you need a kick-ass, affordable attorney to help you.
