Misdemeanor attorneys defending prostitution cases in Arkansas
Prostitution laws ban anyone from offering sexual favors in exchange for money or other compensation (such as drugs). Such cases are typically handled as misdemeanors by the Arkansas District Court. While the act of prostitution is generally a misdemeanor offense, penalties may still include fines, jail time, or community service. This means that you may be unable to care for your family, may have difficulty obtaining favorable employment, or could have your life significantly disrupted. If you are being charged with prostitution, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney in your corner. Our office has extensive experience defending clients against sexually related charges.

Providing legal representation in Arkansas against felony sex related crimes
People generally consider prostitution a “victimless crime,” however, if you are charged with “advancing prostitution” by pimping out women, providing a location for prostitution to occur, actively recruiting individuals to become prostitutes, or running an organized prostitution establishment, you may be facing serious felony charges. These charges may be made worse if you are also accused of violence, being in possession of weapons, or transporting individuals across state lines for the purpose of prostitution. Benca & Johnston has experience defending sex crimes in court both at the state and federal level. Our office will personally investigate your case, analyze the evidence against you, and file a motion to suppress evidence that was obtained against you illegally.
