Defending Against Charges of Soliciting a Prostitute
Prostitution stings are commonly set up by police in Jacksonville and throughout Florida. These stings can involve female police officers posing as a prostitute on the street or police putting ads on Craigslist or in the newspaper.
If you have been arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute, do not speak with the police or other investigators. It is far better for your future if you speak with a proven attorney first and let him communicate with the law enforcement officials and prosecutors. At Mitchell A. Stone, P.A., we are skilled at minimizing the publicity associated with your charges and will fight to have the case resolved discreetly or have it dismissed entirely.
Spas and Massage Parlors
There has been an effort by law enforcement to combat prostitution that occurs in massage parlors and spas. Most often law enforcement will send in undercover officers posing as customers looking for sex rather than a massage. Conversations with the staff can lead to charges of prostitution of the staff, management and owners even if no sexual contact is made. Mitch Stone has successfully defended clients charged in those circumstances.
Charging customers who frequent those businesses with soliciting prostitution is rare. However, recently in Florida law enforcement placed video surveillance inside a spa in order to document prostitution. That was based on allegations of the felonies of sex trafficking and sex slavery which would potentially justify such extreme measures. That is rare but it shows what the government is willing to do to prove a case. Nevertheless, that type of police procedure is not necessarily legal based on Florida search warrant laws and constitutional challenges exist to defend those accused of misdemeanor prostitution in those cases. Mitch Stone understands the law and how to apply it to achieve favorable results even in the face of what seems like insurmountable evidence.
