Florida Prostitution Laws
Per Florida law, it is illegal to engage in any sexual activity that is prompted by a financial transaction. If you’re arrested for prostitution or for soliciting the services of a prostitute, you may be facing severe legal penalties and a misdemeanor or felony conviction. If your offense involves the solicitation of a minor, the charge automatically increases to a second degree felony and you may face up to 15 years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.
