Prostitution Observation

An Observation About Prostitution Based On 18 Years Of Criminal Defense

- RJ, Texas


Prostitution, as shown in the movies is often glamorous and the women are almost invariably beautiful. The reality is that street level prostitutes are most often not very attractive. This is no doubt due to the fact that many have poor living arrangements, are frequently subject to physical abuse and have criminal drug histories.

Unfortunately the individuals most likely to remain in jail are those charged with offering to sell sexual services and not those offering to purchase those services. I personally cannot remember ever representing someone in jail for soliciting sex but I can remember several persons in jail for offering to sell sexual services.

As a defense attorney I take my job of defending the accused very seriously. I provide a full defense without regard to the offense charged because that’s my job. Nonetheless, it does not seem fair that both parties to an offense are frequently treated so differently.
