In Texas, it is a crime to promote, request, or engage in sexual conduct in exchange for a fee. Prostitution is most commonly a misdemeanor, but in certain circumstances, may be enhanced to a felony level charge. Prostitution charges carry severe penalties if convicted, including a permanent criminal record, jail or prison time, and steep fines.
Just the mere allegation of a prostitution offense often results in an individual losing their family, job, and countless other personal, profession, and social repercussions. If you or a loved one has been charged with a prostitution case you need an experienced, board certified criminal defense attorney to protect you, your rights, and your future.
