Prostitution

Scranton Prostitution Attorney

Prostitution is still prevalent throughout the United States and other parts of the world. However, in the Unites States it is illegal in every state other than Rhode Island and eight counties in the state of Nevada. Prostitution is generally defined as the act of exchanging sexual intercourse or sex acts for money or property. It is a very risky business and is responsible for many sexual exploitation and child abuse cases involving young children.

When a person faces prostitution charges, he or she should hire a Scranton prostitution lawyer at the Rogan Law Firm immediately. Failure to hire an experienced prostitution attorney can lead to unnecessary charges and a possible conviction.
