What is Prostitution?

Prostitution is considered the exchange of sexual services for money or other valuable items. In Maryland, like in most states, it is illegal to engage in or solicit prostitution. This includes not only sexual intercourse but also other sexual acts offered in exchange for compensation. Prostitution is considered a criminal offense to protect public morals and maintain societal order.

What are the Penalties for Prostitution in Maryland?

The penalties for prostitution in Maryland can be severe and may include the following:

  • Misdemeanor Conviction: Prostitution is typically charged as a misdemeanor offense. A conviction can result in up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $500.
  • Criminal Record: A prostitution conviction can lead to a criminal record, which can have long-term effects, including difficulty finding employment and housing.
  • Potential for Additional Charges: In some cases, individuals charged with prostitution may also face related charges, such as solicitation, human trafficking, or drug-related offenses if drugs are involved.
  • Sex Offender Registration: In certain circumstances, prostitution-related convictions can require registration as a sex offender, which can significantly impact your life and future prospects.

Defenses Against Prostitution Charges

Some potential defenses against prostitution charges in Maryland may include:

  • Lack of Evidence: The prosecution must be able to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If there is insufficient evidence to support the charges against you, your attorney may be able to challenge the case.
  • Entrapment: If you can indicate that law enforcement officers coerced or induced you into committing the crime, entrapment may be a valid defense.
  • Mistaken Identity: If there is confusion or a case of mistaken identity, your attorney can present evidence to show that you were not the person engaged in prostitution.
  • Constitutional Violations: If your rights were violated at the time of the arrest or investigation process, evidence obtained unlawfully may be suppressed in court.
  • Lack of Intent: Prostitution charges may require the prosecution to prove that you intended to engage in prostitution. It may serve as a defense if you show that you did not have the requisite intent.
  • Diversion Programs: In some cases, especially for first-time offenders, diversion programs may allow individuals to complete community service or counseling instead of facing traditional criminal penalties.
