In some cases, a vehicle used to engage in prostitution will be seized. Often, the local media publishes photos and details of arrests. Risking a criminal conviction in an attempt to keep an arrest quiet is often foolhardy.

You may plead guilty, only to find the disposition of your case written up or listed in the newspaper. Or you may be left with a charge on your criminal record that will be virtually impossible to hide from anyone with a computer.

Charges of prostitution or solicitation will also often impact your ability to hold certain jobs or even rent an apartment in some complexes or neighborhoods.

Such arrests are often the result of a sting operation in response to complaints about prostitution from residents in the neighborhood. Such cases can lead to entrapment or other issues, which are best left to an experienced lawyers.

Frequently, allegations of prostitution or solicitation do not make for strong cases, particularly when the arrested parties exercise their rights to remain silent. Unfortunately, a defendant is too often eager to attempt to talk his or her way out of trouble and avoid the embarrassment of a prostitution charge.

This rarely, if ever, happens. If you are being questioned during a prostitution sting, you are all but certain to be arrested. Your best bet is to remain silent and wait to speak to your attorney. The best evidence against a defendant is too often his or her own statements upon arrest.

You have the right to remain silent: Use it.
