Crackdown on Arizona Prostitution Ring Creates Urgency for Those Involved
Arizona law enforcement continued its pursuit of anyone involved in an alleged multi-state prostitution ring in recent days, as several more people were arrested in connection with the situation. To date, 55 people have been arrested and 17 of them have been charged with felonies, and by all appearances the investigation is set to continue.
If you or someone in your life has been involved in this enterprise, most specifically by soliciting prostitution services at the home where it's alleged to have been operated, you need to act immediately to provide yourself with the best legal protection possible by contacting our lawyers today, as simply waiting and hoping that you won't get ensnared is the worst thing you can do. Of course, if you've already been questioned and/or charged with a crime related to this issue, the urgency should be even more pronounced. Contact the prostitution defense attorneys at the Arizona law firm of David Wroblewski & Associates as soon as possible to schedule an initial consultation.
The Penalties You Could Face
If you are arrested and ultimately convicted of soliciting a prostitute, you could fall under the realm of a new and much more extreme level of punishment. Arizona's governor pushed for legislation that carried much tougher penalties for anyone involved in prostitution in 2006, and it was a successful effort.
As it stands now, anyone convicted of solicitation of prostitution in Arizona faces minimum mandatory jail time, and after a fourth offense, a convicted defendant will be forced to carry a felony conviction forward on his record. The penalties for a conviction are as follows:
- 15 consecutive days in jail for first offense
- 30 consecutive days in jail for second offense
- 60 consecutive days in jail for third offense
- 180 consecutive days in jail for fourth or subsequent offense
As you see, simply allowing an investigation to continue against you could result in a severe criminal remedy being leveled against you, so act now to protect your rights.
