Laws Related to Prostitution

Arizona has several laws relating to prostitution. The main law is Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-3214, which criminalizes engaging in, agreeing to engage in, or offering to engage in sexual conduct with someone else for money or something else of value. Violation of this law is a Class 1 misdemeanor, with a potential fine of $2,500 and jail time of up to six months. A related charge is engaging in prostitution while HIV-positive, which is a Class 6 felony. This charge can lead to up to two years in prison.

Five convictions under this law becomes a Class 5 felony, punishable by at least 180 consecutive days in jail. Additionally, local municipalities may have their own laws regarding prostitution. A qualified Peoria prostitution lawyer could advise you on all these laws and potential punishments, so call us as soon as possible to discuss.

Case Analysis and Defense Strategy

One of the things a talented Peoria prostitution lawyer could do is review all the evidence against their client, evaluate its strengths and weaknesses, and determine if there were any constitutional violations committed during the arrest. Potential constitutional violations that could impact a case are failure to read the defendant their Miranda rights (the right to remain silent and have a lawyer present, among others); unlawful search and seizure; due process violations; and double jeopardy (being tried twice for the same crime).

Grand Canyon Law Group could take all this into account in determining how to move forward with your case. Depending on what their analysis uncovers, they may be able to have charges reduced or dropped, or push for probation or some form of alternative sentencing.

Representing You in Court

In court, a qualified and experienced Peoria prostitution attorney could cross-examine witnesses and question their credibility. We can also challenge evidence and present an argument in favor of an acquittal, reduced charges, or lesser penalties.

A lawyer’s relationship with prosecutors can be key to obtaining a favorable resolution. Judges and prosecutors who the attorney has worked with will have the benefits of familiarity and trust when they consider the lawyer’s cases. When you hire a lawyer who knows the court and the area, you are at a potential advantage.
