Felony Prostitution Charges Withdrawn for ManOct 12 2015 in Case Results, Criminal Defense, Sex Crimes
A 35-year-old man was facing felony prostitution charges for promoting prostitution. He was accused of arranging sexual activities for women and using his cell phone to arrange these acts. The man’s situation, in this case, was unique. He lived in California and the case occurred over five years ago. The marketing professional was looking at anywhere from three and a half years to seven years behind bars if convicted. Clearly worried about a potential jail sentence, he took his case to the skilled attorneys at Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC.
For Attorney Matthew Ness, this meant getting the case active within the court system again. Ness arranged a preliminary arraignment and preliminary hearing for the same day. It was in our best interest to negotiate with the officer prior to the hearing. In court our client pled guilty to a summary offense and his felonies were withdrawn. The man accepted a fine and saw a favorable result that kept him out of prison.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
