Prostitution is illegal in the state of Texas. If you are accused of prostitution and you are subsequently convicted, you may face serious penalties. To protect your rights and prevent a wrongful conviction, you need an experienced, skilled lawyer on your side in court.
Texas Prostitution Law
According to Texas Penal Code 43.02, you commit the crime of prostitution if you knowingly agree or offer to commit a sexual act with someone in exchange for money. You may also be guilty of prostitution if you ask someone to commit a sexual act in exchange for compensation, or if you agree to pay someone who offers to commit a sexual act in exchange for compensation.
If you are convicted of prostitution, your offense will typically be classified as a Class B misdemeanor. However, if you have one or two previous convictions, your crime may be classified as a Class A misdemeanor instead. If you have been convicted at least three times or more, the crime may be classified as a state jail felony. Finally, if you engage in prostitution with someone who is less than 18 years old, you may be convicted of a second degree felony.
