Prostitution & Solicitation Charges in Akron

is prostitution legal in ohio?

In Ohio, soliciting a prostitute and prostitution are both illegal. Prostitution laws forbid several actions like sexual acts in return for money or services, pimping or pandering services, and child prostitution.

These are all forms of sex crimes which can lead to heavy fines and time spent in jail. You have a right to a defense, however, if you are charged with either crime. Call on an Akron criminal defense lawyer to represent you if you have been charged with either solicitation or prostitution.
