Judge Grants Motion and Client Acquitted of Solicitation of Prostitution Case

CHARGE

Solicitation of Prostitution

RESULT

Acquittal

My client was charged with solicitation of prostitution. She had over 40 officer related detentions for prior allegations of prostitution and well over a dozen prior convictions for prostitution. Due to this fact, if my client was convicted of this charge, she was facing substantial jail time, fines and restrictive conditions of supervised probation. Therefore, my client took her case to trial. At trial the undercover detective who was investigating my client testified that she posted sexually explicit advertisements on Craigslist.orgTM for her prostitution services. The detective testified that after calling my client in response to her multiple postings on Craigslist.orgTM that he arranged a “date” with her at a South San Francisco motel. At the motel the officer met my client and searched her and her motel room pursuant to the search and seizure condition of her probation from Los Angeles. From that search the detective located condoms, KY, the cell phone that was identified by number in the advertisements, the laptop computer from which my client was said to have posted her advertisements, and other indicia of prostitution activity. At trial, and after the prosecution's case-in-chief we brought a written motion to dismiss the charges against my client. Our motion was carefully researched and the judge agreed with us that my client was not guilty of the charged offense. The judge granted the motion and my client was acquitted.
