Six people were arrested last week in a citywide prostitution sting, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
The five women and one man arrested range in age from 25 to 53 years old.
Charges range from offering, committing or engaging in prostitution or assignation – first offense, offering, committing or engaging in lewdness – third and subsequent offense to offering, committing or engaging in prostitution or assignation – third and subsequent offense.
Arrests on charges of prostitution account for a significant amount of all arrests for sexually based offenses throughout the state of Florida. In addition to social humiliation caused by such an arrest, if you are convicted of prostitution you could be incarcerated and made to pay heavy fines.
