Michigan Prostitution Defense Lawyer

Prostitution is a term used to describe the criminal act of exchanging sex acts for money or other goods or services and is covered under the Michigan Penal Code §§750.448-750.449a(2012). Both those soliciting and those found engaging in services can face criminal charges. In Michigan, there are specific acts that may be considered to constitute prostitution and may therefore be punishable as misdemeanor or felony offenses depending on whether this is the defendant's first, second, third or subsequent offense.

  • Soliciting, accosting or inviting another to commit prostitution by word or gesture.
  • Receiving, admitting or offering to receive another into a building, vehicle, home or other structure for the purpose of committing prostitution.
  • A male engaging or offering to engage the services of a female for the purpose of prostitution in exchange for money or other goods.
  • Aiding or abetting another to commit a prostitution-related offense.
