There are typically three kinds of parties involved in a prostitution case that our Austin legal team assists.
Can Mr. Trumpler Help Me?
In order to be charged with prostitution in Austin, throughout Texas, or in any other state, you must have engaged in sexual contact in exchange for something of value, such as goods or services. Most often, however, this means monetary compensation passing from a man to a woman.
If you are accused of patronizing or soliciting a prostitute, this means you offered an individual something of value in exchange for sex. This exchange can occur in a brothel, a bar, or another setting, and can involve giving the money, goods, or services to that party or to another person.
Promotion of Prostitution
The promotion of prostitution, or pimping, involves a third party who obtains the compensation provided for the sexual act with the prostitute. Sometimes these actions are tied to an established organization, like a brothel.

"He Swooped In Like a Superhero"
Mr. Trumpler was professional, approachable, incredibly down to earth and reasonable with his prices. He swooped in like a superhero when another firm had left me high and dry, and then helped me reach a favorable conclusion to my case in record time. 5 stars isn't enough, thank you Mr. Trumpler!View On Google
Jason works harder for his clients than any attorney I have ever known. His success rate is so high, he might as well put it on a plaque, but he is far too modest for such shenanigans. Jason is an extremely tenacious, savvy, and respected attorney. And as my former boss, I can also say that this veteran and father is a great friend.View On Google
Prostitution and Other Sex Crimes Carry Serious Consequences
Participating in sex acts in a brothel, asking a woman for sex in exchange for money, and other related crimes are typically considered misdemeanors. Similarly, a man or woman charged with being a prostitute in Austin for the first time will be charged with a misdemeanor. They might face up to 180 days in jail, a fine of up to $2,000, or both. If you were charged as a prostitute, you might also be put on probation, need to complete community service, and attend AIDS education classes.
If you've been charged as a prostitute in the past, you'll be facing more serious consequences. Whereas an initial charge of exchanging sex for money or other compensation is considered a class B misdemeanor, a second or third charge will result in a class A misdemeanor. You might be facing a felony charge if you have been convicted of prostitution three or more times. If you solicited an individual who was between 14 and 18 years old, you could also be facing a felony charge and severe repercussions. Even more serious charges, such as the aggravated promotion of prostitution (tied to a large enterprise) can result in up to 10 years in state prison and a $10,000 fine.
We don't care if you're a woman who has been accused of being a prostitute, if you're a man charged with solicitation at a brothel, or if the police have evidence that you have committed a sex crime. What we care about is protecting your reputation, your livelihood, and the relationships with your loved ones. We also know you have a busy schedule and might be worried about time spent in court; Mr. Trumpler can make a court appearance for you.
Regardless of the specifics, if you have been arrested by the police and had charges filed against you, it is incredibly important to seek the assistance of a lawyer with a background in criminal defense.

The Laws Against Solicitation in Texas Has Grown More Severe
The challenges of the legal system are ever-growing. As of September 2021, the way that the state of Texas uniformly addresses accused solicitors has changed. This shift is due to HB1540, a bill targeting those who are charged with or accused of soliciting sex from a prostitute.
HB1540 makes soliciting a felony as opposed to a misdemeanor for first-time offenders. While this new law does not work retroactively, it does impact any charges in Texas after it was put into place.
Hiring a tenacious Austin-based attorney like Mr. Trumpler can give you the resources you need to pursue dropped or reduced charges.
Solicitation or Prostitution Charges May Lead You to Be Placed on the Texas Sex Offender Registry
In addition to jail time and fines related to prostitution charges, you may also be facing another threat.
Both solicitation and sex work in Texas could require you to register as a sex offender.
Being placed on the sex offender registry can decrease your job possibilities and even prevent you from living in certain places, such as near a school.
This is one of the many reasons why you need a lawyer. You may still be able to get your charges reduced or dropped entirely, meaning fewer legal ramifications — or none at all.
Even if you have lost a case in the past, there is still hope.
Have You Been Convicted of Prostitution or Solicitation? You May Be Able to Request an Order of Nondisclosure
A prostitution or solicitation conviction can affect your career opportunities, social interactions, and everyday life. However, it may be possible that you can get some of your privacy back.
Depending on the factors of your conviction, it is possible to request an order of nondisclosure, which prevents the disclosure of certain criminal records.
Those convicted of a misdemeanor can typically request this process be completed after their case, though they may have to wait two years if convicted of a more severe type. Those who are convicted of a felony will have to wait five years before they can begin this process.
Some charges may not be eligible for this option, but attorney Jason Trumpler can explain eligibility to you in detail.
