Lawyers for Clients Facing Prostitution Charges in Chicago and Cook County

Prostitution is often referred to as the world's oldest profession. While there is no way to know for sure if this is true, it is certain that such activities are illegal in the state of Illinois. In addition to the potential for criminal prosecution and the associated penalties, prostitution is extremely dangerous for anyone involved in the practice. If you are facing charges of soliciting or engaging in prostitution, the experienced attorneys at McMahon Law Offices are ready to help you protect your rights and limit the damage to your personal and professional reputation.

Soliciting Prostitution in Illinois

Prostitution is defined in Illinois law as performing, offering, or agreeing to perform any sexual act in exchange for money or anything of value. Solicitation of prostitution refers to offering money, drugs, or other items of value to another person in exchange for a sexual act. Thanks to relatively recent changes to the law in Illinois, an act of prostitution is prosecutable as a Class A misdemeanor. Solicitation is also a misdemeanor offense, but the charge may be elevated to a felony for solicitation of a minor or a person with intellectual disabilities.

At McMahon Law Offices, our criminal defense attorneys are former prosecutors who understand the law as well as the techniques used in the battle against prostitution. We realize that many prostitution stings conducted by local police departments blur the line between preventive law enforcement and entrapment. If you have been arrested for soliciting a prostitute, we will fully investigate the circumstances of your arrest to ensure that your constitutional rights were not compromised.

Experienced Lawyers for Individuals Charged With Prostitution

Over the last few decades, public policies and government officials have begun to recognize that many people involved in prostitution are actually victims themselves. Some may be direct victims of human trafficking, while others have come under the often-violent influence of pimps or other handlers. With that in mind, Cook County, and other municipalities have developed intervention programs to help those arrested for prostitution escape the destructive lifestyle by addressing the underlying problems.

The compassionate attorneys at McMahon Law Offices are committed to helping clients charged with prostitution create new beginnings for themselves. We realize, however, that doing so can be difficult, especially for those who do not speak English as their primary language. Our attorneys work closely with an Asian-language translator who allows us to better serve clients of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean origin and ancestry. No matter what challenges you may be facing, we are equipped to help you protect your future.
