What Are You Facing For A Prostitution or Solicitation of Prostitution Charge?

by J.D. Garrett on August 9, 2012

Prostitution Charges in Virginia Beach The sex industry is a major revenue generator in Virginia Beach. Being a resort area and having a strong military presence draws many young people to Virginia Beach each year. This in turn entices many women to visit the area for the purposes of prostitution after posting their online profiles on sites such as backpage.com or craigslist.com.

The Virginia Beach Police Department routinely performs sting operations where members of the vice division will pose as either the solicitor or the prostitute. Due to the high number of prostitution cases each year, prosecutors in Virginia Beach and elsewhere in Hampton Roads usually seek jail time, even for first-time offenders. This can be especially worrisome for men, who may be married with a family and career, to learn that in addition to the embarrassment of being arrested, they face the real possibility of serving time in jail. Many women from out of state charged with prostitution in Virginia Beach are generally held without bond until their trial due to them being considered a flight risk by the court.

There are many possible defenses to a prostitution charge that should be discussed with a Virginia Beach criminal defense lawyer immediately.
