Being charged with patronizing a prostitute is embarrassing. No one wants the charge on their record and available for everyone to see when a background search is done. Our Kent prostitution attorneys are here to guide you through this difficult period in your life.
Patronizing is when a person pays, agrees to pay, or offers to pay a fee in exchange for sexual conduct. The sex of the two parties does not matter. “Sexual conduct” includes more than simply intercourse.
It also covers any type of penetration, no matter how slight, as well as any touching of sexual or intimate parts of a person done for sexual gratification. Patronizing of a prostitute is a misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Our criminal attorneys are here to discuss your situation and how we can help you move forward with your life.
