Brooklyn Promoting Prostitution Lawyers
Prostitution is the world’s oldest profession. It has and continues to be widely practiced throughout the country. The illegal status of the trade has done little to stop people from engaging in it. For some years now, local authorities have set up vice squads to deal with prostitution among other things. The traditional targets of these organizations have been street prostitutes and brothels. In recent years, they have gone after major trafficking rings, which you usually involved the kidnapping of young women from all over the world, getting them addicted to drugs and then forcing them to have sex for money.
But other forms of transactional sex have arisen that are nothing like any of the above. The trouble is too many police and prosecutors refuse to see the difference. They will lump your conduct and practice in with cruder and more exploitative forms of prostitution.
If you have been arrested and charged with promoting prostitution, there is a good chance for you to beat it. There is some question as to whether the authorities can tell people what to do with their bodies; they certainly have no power to prescribe the kind of relationship that one person can be in with another.
You might be part of the growing movement to help facilitate companionship. Increasingly, large numbers of single, perfectly healthy, charming, good-looking, and successful men are having a tough time forging and holding on to relationships. The demands of their profession keep them constantly at work, and they are much too busy to put the needed time into finding a partner and sharing intimacy.
The transactional relationship has sprung up in response. This allows young women who want to meet such men to do so with a certain understanding that it worked out and negotiated between them. Your role in this was merely to make such introductions possible. For it, you may have been labeled a madam or a pimp and charged with promoting prostitution. If this is the case, then you should retain legal counsel and begin working straightaway to beat the charge.
Prostitution is legally defined as the commission of a sexual act for monetary compensation or consideration or to receive a thing of value. The trouble that prosecutors have in the case of transactional relationships is the difficulty of proving that sex acts took place or that they were done so for money. They may claim that they have proof that you have been running a virtual brothel or some such other establishment, but the only evidence they have is a website in which women make known their desire to meet men. They may also have other data such as phone numbers and names, but that is no crime.
Do not allow yourself to be pushed around by police and prosecutors. The charge of promoting prostitution is very hard to prove. Even if you are caught in a situation that is much more compromising, even if you are a man who is known to have his own association of girls who engage in sex for money, the police will still need to make that connection; and they will probably find it quite difficult to do so.
Many of the laws regarding sexual morality are outdated and not even wanted by the majority of the people in the state of New York. The case against you is not as strong as it may seem. You should begin your defense against the charge immediately. Working with a lawyer who specializes in such cases will help you get through this difficulty without a lot of trouble. You will be back home before you know it.
