Prostitution Solicitation

I have defended many prostitution solicitation and patronizing prostitution cases over the past 18 years in Nashville, Tennessee. Most arrests are a result of prostitution stings. Stings are set up several times a year all over Nashville at either the street level or via the Internet (usually Craig’s List or Back Page Ads). Even though most clients felt as though they were illegally trapped by law enforcement, they do not want an extended public legal battle. I understand that most clients want to keep their charges as private and confidential as possible. By being honest and straightforward, I know how to end these matters quickly in a very private and discrete matter while still avoiding a permanent conviction and later having their record expunged.   I have included some notable cases below because I know that you are looking for results in your Nashville, Tennessee patronizing prostitution case.

Nashville, Tennessee Patronizing Prostitution Laws and Penalties

The charge in Tennessee is called patronizing prostitution. It is a class B misdemeanor which carries penalties that consist of up to 6 months of jail time, fines, and court costs. If the crime occurs within 100 feet of a church or school, the punishment is increased by making the offense a class A misdemeanor and the maximum jail time is increased from 6 months to 11 months and 29 days. In addition, such a violation near a "church or school zone" requires a mandatory 7 days in jail and a one thousand dollar fine.  As you can see, there are stiff penalties for patronizing prostitution in Tennessee.
