Tampa Prostitution Attorney

Tampa Attorney Representation Since 1978

Anyone who attempts to engage in a conversation for a sex act for a price may be charged with the crime of prostitution under Florida statutes. Prostitution charges in Tampa/Hillsborough County Florida occur in many different scenarios. Often times the Tampa Police Department or Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office will set up prostitution stings. During these stings law enforcement will usually set up surveillance in a hotel room and audio/video tape the arrestee and the undercover office. We also see prostitution cases that arise from a sting that focuses on a local massage parlor/s or escort service/s.
