Criminal Consequences of Prostitution in Providence, Rhode Island
Prostitution has been illegal under all circumstances in Rhode Island since 2009. It is defined as engaging in, offering, or agreeing to engage in any sexual activity in exchange for money or other items of value.
Even though prostitution is the term most people are familiar with, multiple criminal statutes penalize sex work and other acts. Solicitation, loitering, pandering, and procuring are other prostitution-related offenses. For each, there is a range of criminal consequences including jail time. A Prostitution Attorney can help you negotiate the best possible outcome and work to avoid the most serious consequences.
Prostitution, procuring, loitering, and solicitation are punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of $250 to $1000. Second offenses have higher penalties.
