Call Musca Law's Florida Child Prostitution Defense Lawyers
Florida Statute 796.03 states that it is illegal for anyone to procure or otherwise obtain anyone under the age of 18 for the purpose of prostitution or to cause anyone under the age of 18 to be prostituted. Keep in mind that minor children cannot consent to sexual activities.
