A: You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney in order to determine any possible defenses to this charge. Check out www.kacdl.net. Prostitution is a Class B misdemeanor punishable with up to 90 days in jail and a $250.00 fine, or both. Depending upon the jurisdiction and your criminal history, the jail time may be conditionally discharged for a period of two years upon the condition that you have no further offenses.
