Why You Need a Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

OKABE & HAUSHALTER Jan 26, 2019 Sex Crimes

It is 2019, and America still struggles to talk openly and honestly about sex. This taboo topic not only causes myths to prevail but prevents people from getting accurate information about sex; especially, when the topic is about sex workers. Most people consider sex workers prostitutes. When you heard that word many tend to think of women standing in the corner at dusk luring men to have sex with them. The truth is these men know what they want before they get there. These women or men “working” the corner aren’t sirens in the mystical sense. Instead, they are sirens of a more cultural sense. They are telling us that there are holes in our system and that they have lived a life that resulted in them having to use sex work in order to get by.

Our Sex Crime defense attorneys at Okabe &Haushalter in San Francisco believe in judgment-free consultations. We want to hear your story and we want to get a better understanding of your situation. We know that there are many sides to a story and the truth can be buried beneath it. We want to ensure that you are represented correctly because you are not your mistakes, and you deserve to exercise your rights too.

What is Prostitution?

Legally, it is when any person offers sexual conduct for money. The person who was wanting sexual conduct may face prosecution as well, but it is almost disproportionately the sex worker’s fault. If you have been charged with prostitution, and this is your first offense, then you may be sentenced to up to a year in jail. If you have prior convictions then there is mandatory imprisonment of 45 days. If you have 2 prior convictions or prostitution then it is mandatory 90 days. There is no punishment for rehabilitation because the courts do not care whether you get the help that you need. Instead, you will have to wait in jail only to be turned back into the public making it harder for you to get a real job because you now have a record. Do you see how the circle begins?
