Prostitution & Solicitation

Called the oldest profession in the world, prostitution can have a negative impact on a person’s reputation, for both the person accused of prostitution and the person accused of solicitation. This can have a devastating impact on a person both personally and professionally. Therefore it is important to contact a Fairfax Prostitution Attorney who can successfully fight this charge in order to prevent the serious ramifications that can accompany a conviction of prostitution or solicitation.

Prostitution in Virginia is defined as any person who, for money or its equivalent, commits adultery, fornication, or any act considered a crime against nature. This crime is a Class 1 misdemeanor, which can result in up to a year in jail. But perhaps more embarrassing is having your family and friends hear of this charge. We understand how difficult this can be and we are here to help. The Fairfax Prostitution Attorneys at the Law Offices of Patrick N. Anderson and Associates can fight these accusations and help keep your record clean. For instance, if it can be shown that you were forced into prostitution, you cannot be convicted. Prostitution requires intent from the alleged prostitute and if it can be shown that you were forced or otherwise compelled into prostitution, you will escape conviction.

Likewise, being charged with solicitation can tear apart a family and jeopardize a person’s career. This is especially true for those in sensitive positions or those who work as public servants. The effects a solicitation conviction can have on a person’s life are significant, therefore it is imperative that a person contact a Fairfax Prostitution Attorney right away if they have been charged. Again, all information will be held in the strictest confidence so a person accused of solicitation can speak freely without worry that it will get back to family or friends.

Sometimes, police may set up undercover operations both on the street and on the internet in order to catch people allegedly engaged in prostitution and solicitation. Many times in these investigations, however, police will cross the line from legitimate police work into entrapment. If you feel you have unfairly been accused of solicitation based on actions by the police, a Fairfax prostitution attorney can help get these charges dropped and ensure that you are treated fairly under the law.

If you have been charged with either solicitation or prostitution, contact a Fairfax Prostitution Attorney the Law Offices of Patrick N. Anderson and Associates right away. Our knowledge and experience help us provide sound advice on how best to proceed, and we will doggedly fight to uphold your rights and force the state to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt.
