Loitering and Prostitution We Fight For You When It Matters Most

Las Vegas Loitering Attorney

Fight for Your Future with a Las Vegas Criminal Defense Lawyer

Loitering refers to hanging around a public place or a business where one lacks a specific or legal purpose to be at that location. In Nevada, where law enforcement seeks to "crack down" on illegal prostitution, a person can be slapped with a loitering charge when the police are unable to prove that you were soliciting prostitution. Although loitering is a misdemeanor offense, an ultimate conviction would still mean paying fines, potential jail time, and a permanent mark on your criminal record. If you have been arrested for loitering, we urge you to contact a Las Vegas criminal defense attorney from the Brown Law Offices as soon as possible. Even if you were doing nothing wrong and it was a simple misunderstanding, you could still be convicted if you fail to retain a skilled attorney. A criminal conviction will have lasting negative consequences, especially when it comes to securing future employment. Many employers will not hire someone if they have a criminal record, regardless of what the offense was for.

Loitering & Prostitution in Las Vegas

The Las Vegas strip is filled with rambunctious nightlife, scantily clad women and copious amounts of alcohol. Just because a man or women is lingering outside of a casino, does not mean they are guilty of soliciting prostitution. Clark County police invest a great deal of resources to arrest pimps, prostitutes and "Johns" through various sting operations. However, even suggestive gestures submitted into evidence can be insufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. For this reason, many individuals are commonly accused of loitering, which is a common prostitution-related misdemeanor.

In a case like this, it's not unusual for a prosecutor to spin innocent facts to make you look guilty. Just because you were arrested for loitering, or prostitution, does not mean you have to be convicted. Our office has extensive experience defending loitering cases all throughout Clark County. Your potential defenses may include: entrapment, lack of evidence, and mistake. On the other hand, if you are being charged with prostitution, there may be ways to plead your case down to lesser charges of trespass or disorderly conduct.
