YOUR LEGAL DEFENSE
The Robinson Law Firm, P.A. can assist you in your defense against prostitution charges. We may be able to have charges reduced or dismissed. Identifying lack of admissible evidence inhibits the prosecution’s case. Aside from that, there are several circumstances in which charges may be dropped or a case may end with an acquittal. For example, if an undercover police operation was involved, factors may have been present which amount to entrapment. There are also times when the defendant was mistakenly presumed to have committed a crime. This may occur if a person spent time in the vicinity of an area known for prostitution. It could also occur if the defendant was involved in a circumstance similar to prostitution without full knowledge of the situation.
In order to convict someone of prostitution they must prove that prostitution occurred and that the defendant willingly participated. The attorneys and staff at the Robinson Law Firm will conduct a thorough investigation to uncover any facts that may be used in your favor and that could result in a favorable outcome.
