Prostitution and Solicitation
Police agencies in counties such as Wayne, Kent, Oakland, and Kalamazoo have a reputation of setting up "stings" to lure otherwise law-abiding citizens to allegedly solicit a "prostitute" who is in actuality a undercover police officer. Prostitution has been known throughout history as the oldest profession, but the practice of it and solicitation of someone for their sexual services is against the law in the state of Michigan. Individuals convicted more than once of prostitution can face increased penalties. In addition, the performance of a sexual act with a prostitute or otherwise, in public is considered gross indecency. Each offense carries with it the penalties of jail time, mandatory testing for sexually transmitted diseases, the social stigma associated with the commission of these offenses, the potential to have any vehicle used in the commission of any of the above acts forfeited to the state as a nuisance, and registration as a sex offender under the Michigan Sex Offender Registration Act. Our Michigan prostitution and solicitation attorneys act quickly to reclaim your motor vehicle if it was taken, and ensures that a prostitution conviction never appears on your record.
