What Is Prostitution in California?

Prostitution is the act of engaging in sexual intercourse or other sexual activities in exchange for money. In California, it is a crime to solicit or engage in prostitution, or to own or manage a place where prostitution occurs.

In order to be convicted of prostitution, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime. This is a high standard, and it is possible to beat your charges if you have an experienced prostitution attorney on your side. If you are arrested for prostitution, don't make any statements to the police. Anything you say can and will be used against you in court. You should also refuse to take a polygraph test if the police offer one.

Penalties for Prostitution in California

The penalties for prostitution in California depend on the circumstances of your arrest. Generally, the charge will be either a misdemeanor or a felony. The type of charge you face will depend on the specific facts of your case, including the age of the prostitute, the age of the person who hired the prostitute, and whether any money or drugs changed hands.

If you are convicted of misdemeanor prostitution, you will face up to six months in jail and fines of up to $1,000. If you are convicted of felony prostitution, you will face 16 months to three years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
