What is Prostitution?

Prostitution refers to exchanging sexual services for money or other forms of compensation. It is considered a criminal offense in most jurisdictions, including Bend, Oregon. The person offering sexual services for payment (commonly referred to as a sex worker) and the individual seeking or purchasing such services (commonly referred to as a client or john) can face legal consequences. Prostitution laws are in place to address concerns related to public order, health, and morality.

What are the Penalties for Prostitution in Oregon?

In Oregon, engaging in prostitution or promoting prostitution can have serious legal consequences. Penalties for prostitution-related offenses can include fines, probation, mandatory counseling or education programs, community service, and even imprisonment. These penalties can escalate for subsequent offenses, making it crucial to have skilled legal representation to help mitigate the potential consequences.

Furthermore, being charged with prostitution can damage one's reputation, strained personal relationships, and difficulties finding employment, housing, or educational opportunities. These collateral consequences underscore the importance of seeking effective legal defense to protect your legal rights and prospects.

Defenses Against Prostitution Charges

At Ward Grover, we recognize that various strategies and defenses can be employed to challenge prostitution charges. Our experienced Bend prostitution attorneys will thoroughly analyze the specific circumstances of your case to craft a tailored defense strategy. Some common defenses against prostitution charges include:

  • Lack of Intent: Proving intent is crucial in a prostitution case. Our legal team will investigate whether there was evidence of an agreement for sexual services in exchange for compensation or whether the encounter was a misunderstanding.
  • Entrapment: Law enforcement agencies must adhere to strict guidelines when conducting sting operations or undercover investigations. If it can be demonstrated that law enforcement coerced or enticed an individual into engaging in prostitution, it could constitute entrapment and lead to a dismissal of charges.
  • Constitutional Violations: If law enforcement violated your constitutional rights during the arrest, search, or seizure process, the evidence obtained through such violations may be deemed inadmissible in court.
  • Lack of Evidence: Our skilled attorneys will scrutinize the evidence against you to identify any weaknesses, inconsistencies, or inaccuracies that could doubt the prosecution's case.
