Escort Services, Prostitution and Unlicensed Massage
While escort services and prostitution has flourished with the growth of the internet, prostitution and related crimes have been around for centuries before the dawn of the computer. You don't have to look very far to see that law enforcement, the NYPD, local prosecutors, the FBI and the United States Attorney's Office, aggressively investigates and prosecutes prostitution and associated offenses. As a result, lives and families are devastated as loved ones are incarcerated or humiliated. Just ask Eliot Spitzer.
At a minimum, those involved in the prostitution, "johns," madams, prostitutes, pimps, call girls, phone operators, money collectors and anyone else who sets up, establishes, or assists in the service, may be charged with one or more of the following crimes due to their direct involvement or because they were acting as an accomplice:
- Patronizing a Prostitute
- Promoting Prostitution
- Compelling Prostitution
- Permitting Prostitution
- Unlicensed Massage
The above mentioned crimes range from a "B" misdemeanor, punishable by up to 90 days in jail, to a "B" felony, punishable by up to 25 years in state prison. While each of the crimes directly related to prostitution may be apparent if an individual is involved in "merely" a street level offense, the more complex, sophisticated or involved the organization, the greater the likelihood that other crimes may be charged. These crimes range from an "A" misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail, to a "B" felony and include:
- Money Laundering
- Falsifying Business Records
