Penalties for Prostitution in FloridaThe penalties a person can receive for prostitution within the State of Florida largely depend on the nature of the violation and how many violations you have been charged with. Penalties can range from 60 days in jail to up to fifteen years in prison. In addition, prostitution charges can either be ruled misdemeanors or felonies depending on the situation. Either conviction may results in immense fines and even the possible loss of your driving privileges.
If you are charged and convicted of prostitution with a minor, you will most likely find yourself facing additional and much more serious sex crime charges, which could include child abuse, lewd and lascivious molestation, or child exploitation. These additional charges could be brought upon you by the State of Florida or by Federal Law Enforcement. Any additional charges that you might face will complicate your defense.
