Information on Prostitution Charges in NJ

Prostitution is considered a disorderly persons offense in New Jersey which is a misdemeanor. It will be handled in the local municipal court in the county in which you are charged.

With no prior-record, there is a presumption of non-incarceration therefore you will almost never be sentenced to jail time. If this is also the case, we can negotiate a downgrade to some non-criminal offense or to another criminal offense such as disorderly conduct which will look a lot better on your record.

Promoting prostitution is a fourth degree felony crime in New Jersey which includes up to eighteen (18) months in New Jersey state prison if convicted in addition to the permanent felony charge on your record.

Prostitution involving anyone under the age of 18 can be charged as human trafficking in NJ which is a first degree offense punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
