What Are Prostitution Offenses?

Overall, prostitution laws tend to be vaguely defined. Thus, actions or behavior you may believe to be legal can be included in what the courts consider to be prostitution.

Texas generally defines prostitution as:

  • Providing sexual conduct for pay
  • Paying for sexual conduct
  • Solicitation of sexual conduct

At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, we often hear the common misconception that entrapping an individual into engaging in prostitution is unlawful. In the majority of such cases, however, using entrapment as a defense is unworkable. This is because coercion is required as a factor in entrapment. Only if the accused was induced to engage in prostitution when they had no intention of doing so would entrapment apply. If you believe entrapment as a defense applies to your case, you should consult with one of our qualified San Antonio prostitution defense lawyers.

Compelling prostitution means that you were involved in “pimping” for another without the use of force or coercion. This charge carries penalties that may include the mandatory registration as a sex offender and up to a 20-year prison sentence. When facing such a charge, it is vital that you seek legal advice from one of our criminal defense lawyers as soon as possible. Our legal team is available to take your calls 24/7.

Why You Need a Prostitution Defense Attorney

At Smith & Vinson Law Firm, we may be able to get your charges reduced or possibly dismissed. That would save you hefty fines – potentially thousands of dollars – and perhaps even jail time. Retaining the services of a qualified professional is the most important step you can take to protect your future. Our San Antonio prostitution defense lawyers can help you throughout the duration of your case.

What to Expect for a First-Time Prostitution Charge

Generally, on a first-offense prostitution charge, police will take you into custody, you will be arrested, and the judge will set a bond for your release or you will be released on your own recognizance. When a bond is set, you or a family member must arrange to pay it or hire a bail bondsman. Our knowledgeable attorneys can provide help with this by referring you to a reputable bonding agent so that you can be released from custody as soon as possible.

Our firm knows how overwhelming it can be to face prostitution charges. We urge you to put aside your fear or embarrassment in order to get the legal counsel you need at this critical time. We thoroughly understand the difficulty of your position and are here to stand by you and give you the legal support you need throughout the duration of your case.

  • 5 Stars in making me feel like a top priority!

    “Jarrod Smith of Smith and Vinson Law Firm provided me with the best service I could have possibly asked for. Having no background in law and finding myself in a situation that left me feeling extremely vulnerable, I felt quickly at ease in their care. They were very reasonable with my situation and helped work around my needs in providing me the most support and information on how to best handle my case. I'd recommend this firm to anyone seeking help with a traffic violation of any kind. I feel that if it weren't for them I would have been heavily misguided and probably would not have made it through the system with the best possible outcome for me. 5 Stars for their service, generosity, and in making me feel like a top priority!”

Worked with payment methods (very important) .I had numerous lawyers to choose from. 110% glad I chose Jarrod to represent and fight for me. Throughout whole process I had the utmost confidence in Mr. Smith and his work. the goal when we first met was to "get the DWI dismissed" and that is exactly what happened. mission accomplished. if you need a DWI removed call jarrod”

    Ronald D.

  • He's a real lawyer!

    “A civil issue arose in Austin with a family member. We sought the advice of a well named Austin attorney. This unnamed attorney provided egregious legal advice. In court, a lifetime civil injunction was ruled by the judge on this non-criminal civil issue. Once learning of this judgement we immediately started looking for another attorney and found Brad Vinson, with Smith and Vinson. Simply put, Brad had this entire debacle reversed and a new judgement set for what is customarily ruled in similar cases. It didn't take long either. I only wish we had called Brad first. He's a real lawyer!”

    David

  • Professional representation at its best!

    “I am grateful for the representation both men have provided me and without hesitation, I would speak volumes of their service. Thank you so much!”
