Houston Prostitution Defense Attorney
In Texas, a charge of Prostitution is taken very seriously. Section 43.02 of the Texas Penal Code defines Prostitution as knowingly offering to engage, agreeing to engage, or engaging in sexual conduct for money and “solicitation” would be defined as to knowingly solicit or attempt to recruit, in a public place, another person to engage in an act of prostitution.
Convictions of a prostitution or solicitation of prostitution charge are punished the following ways:
First Time Offender: Class B Misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Registration as a sex offender with the State of Texas can also be ordered by the judge with this type of case.
Second or Third Time Offender: Class A Misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000. Registration as a sex offender with the State of Texas can also be ordered by the judge if the offender has not already had to register.
Fourth or More Time Offender: State Jail Felony, which is punishable from 180 days to 2 years incarceration in a State jail facility and a fine of up to $10,000. Registration as a sex offender with the State of Texas can also be ordered by the judge if the offender has not already had to register.

Mr. Darvishi represented me in an assault case. I made a big mistake but luckily Sean was really aggressive in his approach! He may be young but prosecutors respect him! I was able to get a pre-trial diversion where my case would be dismissed!!! I would highly recommend. He took the time to meet with me at his office multiple times and do what needed to be done!Jane
Mr. Darvishi represented me in getting my record sealed in Houston for an event that happened a few years ago. He was really good at keeping me up to date with what was going on and he made me feel really comfortable. I saw him convince a prosecutor into agreeing to have my record sealed and I was impressed! Definitely going to recommend him to my friends!Anonymous
