The act of engaging in, agreeing to engage in, or offering to engage in a sexual act with another person in return for money or a fee constitutes prostitution under Massachusetts law. Prosecution in the Commonwealth is notorious for cracking down on alleged prostitution crime offenders, looking for evidence under every metaphorical stone.

The prosecution must prove two things beyond reasonable doubt:

  1. You were the person who engaged in a sexual act, agreed to do so, or offered it.
  2. The said sexual act would be done for some sort of fee in return.

It is within this second necessity that the prosecution can most likely be dismantled by a creative and experienced criminal defense attorney. Proving that a monetary or commercial transaction transpired can be difficult without solid evidence, which rarely exists in such cases. If you have been accused of prostitution, contact Brad Bailey Law and our award-winning team of Boston sex crime lawyers today.

Customer or Producer – Sexual Conduct for a Fee

The other side of prostitution is the person who has agreed to purchase, has purchased, or offers the purchase of a sexual act from someone. This person is often described as a “john” in law enforcement lingo, and they can face penalties just as severe as the alleged prostitute. For a first-time prostitution solicitation conviction, the penalty can be 30 months in prison and a fine that is at least $1,000 but may be as great as $5,000.

Entrapment & Prostitution Stings

The police may be pressured to catch more alleged johns and prostitutes. In an effort to fulfil arrest quotas, it is not uncommon for law enforcement officials to dress up a female undercover officer in street clothes and have her offer sexual acts to passerby. This is routinely called a prostitution sting, and while it may catch many potential johns, it does so in a way that can be a direct violation of constitutional rights.

When a person is unreasonably or persistently encouraged by a member of law enforcement, whether they are undercover or not, to commit a crime and is then arrested for committing said crime, this is known as entrapment. Prostitution stings are comprised entirely of a police officer pressuring people into purchasing sexual acts. If our criminal defense attorneys can show that the sting was actually entrapment, the case may be thrown out entirely.
