Defense of Prostitution Charges

In Oregon, many prostitution crimes are a Class A misdemeanors punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of $6,250. The city of Portland and other municipalities also have ordinances prohibiting activities such as "loitering" for the purpose of prostitution, and police in the area frequently conduct stings targeting both alleged johns and alleged prostitutes.

If you have been arrested for prostitution or for violating a municipal prostitution ordinance, you were probably issued a citation instructing you to appear in court at a later date. Now is the time to speak with a lawyer. With experienced and skilled legal representation, it may be possible to minimize the consequences or even get the charge dismissed.
