Penalties for Prostitution & Solicitation in WI
Both prostitution and soliciting prostitution are Class A misdemeanor offenses
in Wisconsin – the most serious type of misdemeanor. A conviction
of either can result in penalties of up to nine months in jail, fines
up to $10,000, or both. If the alleged act of prostitution involved a
minor, the charges can increase to a Class D felony and carry up to $100,000
in fines, up to 25 years in prison, and mandatory
registration as a sex offender.
Prostitution charges can stem from any of the following acts:
- Having, offering, or requesting sex in exchange for anything of value
- Committing, offering, or requesting oral or anal sex for anything of value
- Living in a known house of prostitution
- Committing, offering, or requesting any sexual contact for anything of value
- Masturbating a person, offering to masturbate a person, or requesting to
be masturbated in exchange for anything of value
Charges of this nature can be extremely damaging and require tenacious
representation in order to be successfully defended. If you are facing
prostitution or solicitation charges, it is urgent you
