Prostitution ARS 13-3214 – In Arizona, it is unlawful for a person to knowingly engage in prostitution. In Arizona, it is a crime to buy or sell sex, or to facilitate, for money or something of value.

A person who violates this section is guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor, except that:

  • A person who is convicted of a first violation of this section shall be sentenced to serve not less than fifteen consecutive days in jail and is not eligible for probation or suspension of execution of sentence until the entire sentence is served.
  • A person who is convicted of a second violation of this section shall be sentenced to serve not less than thirty consecutive days in jail and is not eligible for probation or suspension of execution of sentence until the entire sentence is served.
  • A person who is convicted of a third violation of this section shall be sentenced to serve not less than sixty consecutive days in jail, is not eligible for probation or suspension of execution of sentence until the entire sentence is served, and shall complete an appropriate court-ordered education or treatment program.
  • A person who has previously been convicted of three or more violations of this section and who commits a subsequent violation of this section is guilty of a class 5 felony, shall be sentenced to serve not less than one hundred eighty consecutive days in jail and is not eligible for probation or suspension of execution of sentence until the entire sentence is served. This paragraph does not prohibit a person from being sentenced to serve a period of incarceration in the state department of corrections.

A sexual act can be defined as any kind of sex including vaginal, oral, anal, groping, and BDSM. It’s important to note that you do not need to exchange money to be guilty of prostitution. An exchange of anything of value for sex can be considered prostitution.

Penalties for a first-time conviction include mandatory minimum jail for 15 days and a maximum of 6 months. These penalties will be more severe for repeat offenses.

There are several defenses that an experienced criminal defense attorney could raise to defend against prostitution charges, such as entrapment. If you are facing prostitution charges in Arizona, you should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to discuss your legal options.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the Attorneys For Freedom Law Group during a... couple difficult circumstances in my life and although it is never fun to have the need for a defense attorney, the tireless efforts that Mark, Rachel and the rest of the team put in on my cases went over and above. At the end of the day my results were better than I could have expected. I highly recommend them for all of their services and more than satisfied with everything that they did for me.Thank you Attorneys for Freedom,Chip Kotyread more

I highly recommend the Attorneys For Freedom! I signed up for the attorneys on retainer program and... it has literally saved me tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The program manager, Jonathan Harris, guided me through the process of using their legal service’s like a true professional. The communication has been excellent and it truly was refreshing and comforting knowing I had a reputable law firm helping me every step of the way. He actually relieved me from the headaches of trying to deal with this issue, so I could focus on our business and as a result my business partner and I did get a favorable outcome that we’re happy with.read more
