What Is Prostitution?

In the State of Florida, prostitution is defined as the exchange of sexual acts for money, goods, services, or anything of value. This includes not only the direct exchange of sexual favors for payment but also solicitation, which involves offering or agreeing to engage in sexual activity for compensation.

Florida law prohibits various activities related to prostitution, including:

  1. Engaging in Prostitution: This involves offering, soliciting, or engaging in sexual activity in exchange for money or other compensation.
  2. Soliciting Prostitution: This refers to the act of asking, enticing, or inviting another person to engage in prostitution.
  3. Operating a Brothel or House of Prostitution: Owning, operating, or managing a place where prostitution occurs is illegal in Florida.
  4. Procuring for Prostitution: Procuring, enticing, or soliciting another person for prostitution is also prohibited.

It's essential to note that both the person offering sexual services and the person soliciting or procuring those services can be charged with prostitution-related offenses in Florida.

Possible Penalties for Being Convicted of Prostitution in Florida

The penalties for being convicted of prostitution in Florida vary depending on the circumstances of the case and the individual's criminal history.

  • First-time offenders may face up to 60 days in jail, community service, and a fine of up to $500.
  • Second-time offenders, the crime is elevated to a first-degree misdemeanor, with penalties that can include up to 1 year in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
  • Third and subsequent offenses are classified as third-degree felonies, with potential penalties including up to 5 years in jail and fines up to $5,000.

Additionally, if the offense involves a minor, the charges escalate to more severe felonies with harsher penalties, potentially including significant prison time and mandatory registration as a sex offender.
