Texas Prostitution Laws
When it comes to accepting or soliciting sexual conduct for a fee, your charges will be determined by what was exchanged and what was agreed upon. This means that while a prosecutor may insist that you had certain motives, an effective criminal defense lawyer can help you cast doubt on their allegations, increasing the odds of you obtaining a reduced sentence or even having the charges dropped altogether.
You could face criminal sentencing such as:
- Class B misdemeanor: Prostitution or solicitation of sexual conduct for a fee
- Class A misdemeanor: Prostitution or solicitation of sexual favors along with one to two previous convictions for prostitution
- State jail felony: Repeat offenses for prostitution, solicitation, or pimping
- Third degree felony: Involvement in a formal prostitution enterprise, such as ownership, financing, or controlling
- Second degree felony: Solicitation or pimping of a minor
- First degree felony: Involvement in a formal prostitution enterprise where one of the subjects is under the age of 18

There are many different defenses we can use to prove your innocence. Our team includes a former prosecutor and a lawyer who is board certified in criminal defense by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. We understand what it takes to help you pursue the best possible results for your situation, and we are on your side.
Not all accusations of prostitution are rooted in fact. In some cases, a law enforcement officer will make conclusions about what happened without knowing the facts. In others, a defendant could have been the victim of entrapment and been persuaded to commit a crime. The more time we have to build a case for you, the better your chances will be at a favorable outcome.
