Seal or Expunge Florida Prostitution Charge on Your Criminal Background

Jacksonville criminal attorney

If you were arrested for prostitution, do not be ashamed to ask for help. Call (904) 564-2525 to speak to a lawyer in Jacksonville FL.

As a Jacksonville criminal lawyer, I have represented people charged with offering prostitution and those charged with solicitation.  If you are arrested or given a notice to appear citation for prostitution, it will show up on a Florida background check.  This is public record.  It is important to realize this before you enter a plea of guilty or no contest to the charge.  If you are convicted or adjudicated guilty of the crime, you are not eligible for a Florida record seal.  Talking to a Jacksonville criminal defense attorney is beneficial to understand the consequences.  If you were not convicted of the crime, you may be able to seal or expunge your criminal record.  Call (904) 564-2525 to speak with a Jacksonville criminal lawyer about your case.

The Florida prostitution law is Section 796.07.  It seems that police have making many arrests under this law lately.  Fall must be the season for prostitution stings, because I am continuously finding articles of people being arrested for prostitution in Florida.  In September, I wrote an article on the Jacksonville Criminal Defense Lawyers website called Clay County Prostitution Sting Leads to 16 Arrests. The article was about several people that were arrested at massage parlors in Clay County for prostitution related offenses. It appears that this type of investigation is occurring all over Florida. Yesterday, First Coast News of Jacksonville reported on a prostitution sting in Winter Park FL. The article stated:

“The Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation arrested two women on prostitution charges Wednesday afternoon in Winter Park.  Investigators said the Happy Panda Massage Parlor had been under surveillance for six months after a number of complaints about late-night activity at the business near Fairbanks and U.S. 17-92.  Agents seized cash and equipment. Officers said this is the third time workers at the Happy Panda have been arrested for prostitution.”

Just three days ago, police conducted an prostitution sting in Bradenton.  The Bradenton Patch reported:

“On November 5, 2013, the City of Bradenton Police Department’s Casual Clothes and Narcotics Unit conducted an undercover Prostitution Operation throughout the city’s jurisdiction. The operation targeted individuals attempting to procure the services of an individual for the purpose of prostitution, or for any other lewd act…. The City of Bradenton Police Department will continue its city-wide enforcement effort to prevent and stop the illegal acts of prostitution.”

Last month, there was a large prostitution bust in Naples FL.  NBC news stated:

“Ten people were arrested during a prostitution bust on Friday. The Naples Police crime suspension team, along with Collier County Sheriff’s Office vice and narcotics bureau, conducted a prostitution operation on Friday. According to reports, nine suspects solicited an undercover officer to perform a sexual act in exchange for money. One suspect offered to perform a sexual act with an undercover officer for payment.”

These prostitution stings are leading to arrests all over Florida.  I am sure that many people will just plead to the charges believing it will not affect them in the future.  This is a misconception.  Not only will this create a criminal record, past convictions for prostitution can be used against you if you are arrested for prostitution in the future.
