What Constitutes Prostitution?
The simple version of Illinois State law defines prostitution as performing, offering to perform, or promising to perform any sort of sexual act for anything of value. This means that money, gifts, or services can all be cited as payment in a prostitution page, opening the door for a wider array of accusation opportunities. The less simple version of the law is actually somewhat convoluted, as the definition of a prostitution crime starts to expand.
Actions that might be related to your prostitution crime charges include:
Strict Punishments for Prostitution Charges
Although it is generally considered a nonviolent crime, prostitution is still a sex crime. To that end, it is subject to seriously damaging penalties upon conviction. If you do not take the appropriate steps to defend yourself in and out of court, you could wind up in a precarious situation that jeopardizes your future for the rest of your life.
Consequences you could be facing vary from case to case but are always severe, such as:
- Prison or jail time
- Fines paid to the state
- Sex offender registration
- Ruination of reputation
- Career opportunity loss
