Prostitution Arrest in Massachusetts
What happens if you are arrest on a Prostitution charge? While this is a very embarrassing charge, legally it can be a difficult charge for the Commonwealth to prove in Court.
In most cases, it is alleged that you attempted to solicit a prostitute, by answering some ad on Craig’s List or other site like Back pages, where the police were conducted a string operation. In these cases, you may have a defense that you were entrapped by the police.
Often, Attorney DelSignore can work out a resolution to avoid a criminal conviction with this type of charge. Attorney DelSignore understands the embarrassment and potential loss of employment that this charge can bring on; he will do everything he can to resolve the case as quickly as possible and keep the case away from any media attention.
It is important to not make any statements after being arrested for a criminal charge. Whether the statement is made to a police officer, the media or a this party, it can be used against you in Court.
In some of these cases, the police will arrest multiple people at one time. When this happens, often the media will publish a store about the string operation and could publish a booking photo from the arrest. When you are the only one arrested, and not part of string operation, it is less likely that the case will receive media attention. It is unpredictable to figure out whether the media will care about a particular case; it depends on the jurisdiction of the court, and what else is happening in the news on that day. After the first court date, typically cases do not receive any further attention in the papers.
