New York Promoting Prostitution

Promoting Prostitution is a crime committed when a person—one who is acting neither as a prostitute nor as a patron of a prostitute—advances from or profits from prostitution. As New York Promoting Prostitution Lawyers, we have seen that the various offices of the District Attorney throughout New York City, Westchester County, Nassau County, and Suffolk County take prostitution and Patronizing Prostitution very seriously.

Any knowledgeable New York Criminal Lawyer will tell you that promoting prostitution is committed when a person is engaged in actions or activities related to:

  • Receiving Compensation for (profits from) procuring a prostitute for a patron.
  • Soliciting a patron for a prostitute or for a place where prostitution is practiced.
  • Soliciting customers or transports persons for the purposes of prostitution.
  • Owning, operating, establishing, or managing a dwelling or establishment for the purpose of supplying a place where prostitution is practiced or encouraged.
  • Securing a prostitute to work in a place where prostitution is practiced, or induces another person to become a prostitute.

New York Penal Law sets forth some of the most serious crimes relating to Promoting Prostitution, which can range from a Misdemeanor to a Felony and result in prison terms from 1 to 25 years. The seriousness of the charge the district attorney will bring against you, and the length of the resulting punishment you might receive, will depend in the part on the following factors:

  • Whether the criminal act involved force or coercion.
  • The number of prostitutes involved.
  • The age of the individual(s) whose prostitution you advanced or from which you profited.

Client Reviews
My wife and I met under some unconventional circumstances. After I had some legal problems, Mr Bilkis and his firm continually got me out of trouble. I then had his firm represented my wife and he got her out of trouble! We are still married and got our ways straightened away. We both can't thank him enough for saving our lives and our families! J.P.
I contacted Stephen Bilkis' office for an issue regarding a family member and I could not be happier with the results. I have recommended the firm to friends and family, all of whom were also ecstatic with Mr. Bilkis and all members of his staff. P.R.
I was in need of legal assistance for a very sensitive matter for a family member. I contacted the law offices of Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC and was met with staff whose demeanor was supportive, compassionate and professional. The lawyer handling our case had many years of experience and treated us as if we were his own family. Our experience was so good, and we became so close to all of the staff and all of the attorneys who assisted us, that we consider them our extended family and continue to send them our home baked gifts for the holidays. P.A.K.
I hired Stephen Bilkis and Associates to represent me on a legal matter a few months ago and am grateful for their swift action and resolution on my behalf. I was impressed with their professionalism and would recommend them to friends and family in a heartbeat. M.B.
