Legal Punishments Involving Prostitution Convictions in Florida

In many cases, first time prostitution offenses are considered misdemeanors with varying consequences, with up to 60 days in jail, up to six months of probation, up to $500 fines, or both. However, as it is considered a sex crime, there are ways the violation could escalate to felonies in the eyes of the law, such as if it was a third offense of Prostitution (i.e. two prior Prostitution convictions) making it a Third Degree Felony, or if you were to pursue sexual services from an individual under the age of 18, making it a Second Degree Felony. Depending on where you were, who you were with, and what you were doing, some of the harshest consequences of prostitution convictions include:

  • $5,000 fine for Third Degree Felony / $10,000 fine for Second Degree Felony
  • Up to five years in prison for Third Degree Felony / Up to fifteen years in prison for a Second Degree Felony
  • Mandatory sex offender registration
  • Loss of career opportunities
