    Prostitution Charge Reduced To Disorderly Conduct For Chicago Woman

    Dec 30 2015 in Case Results, Sex Crimes

    A 19-year-old woman from Chicago was traveling in the Pittsburgh area when she was charged with prostitution. She was previously arrested in Florida for the same charge and, therefore, was not receiving any favorable treatment from the arresting police officer. Understandably concerned that she would be forever marked as a prostitute, the young woman sought out the experienced professionals at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC.

    Criminal defense attorney Matthew Ness represented the woman and fought aggressively against her prostitution charge, arguing that it was not worth labeling this young woman as a prostitute for the remainder of her life. The district attorney agreed to reduce her prostitution charge to a lesser offense of disorderly conduct. Our client received only six short months of probation, allowing our client to start over without a tarnished record as a prostitute.
