If You Are Facing Charges For Prostitution, Don’t Say Anything Until You Talk To A Lawyer
Under the laws governing prostitution in Pennsylvania, the prostitute, the client and the parties who manage the operation can face charges for different crimes. Depending on your role in the situation and how many previous offenses you have on your record, you could be facing misdemeanor or felony charges.

- Patronizing: Sometimes referred to as solicitation of prostitution, the so-called “John” who hires a prostitute can be charged with the crime of patronizing if he or she offers money in exchange for sex.
- Promoting prostitution: Sometimes referred to as “pimping” or “pandering,” the crime of promoting prostitution is reserved for the person who runs the business portion of the operation.
