PROSTITUTION, SOLICITING A PROSTITUTE


 

Massachusetts law makes it a crime to offer to engage in sexual conduct for a fee. A person does not have to engage in sexual conduct, it is enough if the Commonwealth can prove that you agreed to pay money for some type of sexual conduct or agree to perform some kind of sexual act in exchange for money.

 

You can be charged with solicitation by reaching an agreement to exchange money or something of value for a sexual act in return.

 

A person charged under engaging in sexual conduct for a fee to face up to one year in the House corrections or a $500 fine.

 

Law enforcement in Massachusetts patrols the Internet and sites such as craigslist searching for people offering sex for a fee. At times law enforcement will even post an ad offering sex for a fee and lure suspects to a hotel where an undercover officer will reach an agreement with the suspect to perform some type of sex act for a fee at which time the suspect will then be arrested.

Mayor Marty Walsh and the city of Boston have taken and new stance as to prostitution and consider a prostitute someone who potentially is the victim of sex trafficking. The focus now is more on curbing prostitution by arresting those soliciting prostitutes. A person who is arrested by responding to an Internet ad for sex for a fee will face charges of solicitation and will have to go to court related to these types of charges. It is important to retain a criminal attorney with experience with solicitation and sex for a fee charges. Attorney Frank Fernandez has handled numerous cases on behalf of clients charged with solicitation and obtained dismissals of these charges protecting the clients record and avoiding public humiliation.

 

The City of Boston believes that by arresting the John, the person seeking services, that they will then curb prostitution in general by arresting and humiliating those seeking sex for a fee. Stings are routinely set up to try to catch those soliciting prostitutes. Police will go undercover as prostitutes and post online luring perspective clients to hotels and then arresting them once an agreement is in place for sex for a fee. It is then the clients word versus the undercover officers were as to what was said related to the agreement and once in court there is the possibility that a clients name may become public. attorney Fernandez is very experienced at obtaining dismissals for these types of cases and avoiding public attention.

 

These cases must be handled very delicately to obtain a result in which a client is not exposed to public humiliation. Once these matters are dismissed they can be sealed through proper motions after a dismissal is obtained. Frank Fernandez is experienced in both resolving the matters and sealing a clients record so that they do not have to answer to future employers or a graduate University as to the arrest for this type of an offense.

Websites such as craigslist and Backpage are routinely checked by local law-enforcement who respond to ads with the intent of arresting those offering sex for a fee or place their own ad in attempts to arrest those seeking sex for a fee. Be very careful in using Internet websites for the solicitation of prostitutes or to offer services of sex for a fee.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
