Successful Handling of Prostitution Charges

The legal definition of prostitution can be very broad and include a number of different activities. Essentially, providing any type of sexual act in exchange for money or goods is considered to be illegal. However, since this law is so complex, it is easy for law enforcement to make mistakes and misunderstand the circumstances surrounding an arrest.

If you were arrested for prostitution, you should act quickly to hire an experienced Georgia prostitution lawyer. At Elmer H. Young, Attorney At Law, we are not here to judge or question you. Our goal is to mount a defense on your behalf and protect your rights.

Call us today at 706-284-4380 if you would like our firm on your side.

Penalties for Prostitution Charges in Georgia

The state of Georgia considers that a person who intentionally provides a sexual act for their own monetary gain is guilty of prostitution. Prosecutors and law enforcement pursue and prosecute these crimes aggressively. However, proving this crime can be difficult for prosecutors because much of the evidence in these cases is circumstantial. Our goal is to help protect you from the consequences of a conviction as well as the negative social stigma.

Depending on the circumstances, you could face the following penalties:

  • Fines up to $5,000
  • Jail or prison time
  • Community service
  • Mandatory STD testing
  • Sex education classes
  • Probation
