In the state of Utah, being charged with prostitution, facilitating prostitution, or soliciting prostitution can carry very stiff penalties. Preserving your right to be considered innocent until proven guilty requires the experienced legal services of a lawyer like Dennis Pawelek and the associates at Pawelek Law, PLLC.
A prostitution charge is defined as: Engaging in sex for money, serving as an inmate in a house of prostitution, or being within view of a public place to be hired to engage in sexual activity.
Facilitating prostitution, sometimes referred to as Pimping, involves elements such as: sharing in prostitution proceeds, owning, controlling, managing, supervising, or keeping a house of prostitution or prostitution operation.
A charge for soliciting prostitution involves procuring or attempting to procure a prostitute for yourself or a patron.
Some of these crimes can be charged as felonies or misdemeanors. In some instances the exact procedures used by law enforcement can have a charge thrown out of court. In other instances Dennis Pawelek might be able to negotiate a plea bargain to reduce the charge, reduce the sentence, or prevent you from having to register to a public list.
