Prostitution & Sex Crime Penalties in Allen TX

The penalties you face depend on the nature and severity of the sex crime charges you face.

Even for a less severe charge like solicitation or prostitution, you still face the very real possibility of jail time. A first-offense solicitation charge typically carries Class B misdemeanor charges, punishable by:

  • Up to 6 months in jail
  • Up to $2,000 in monetary fines

For a second prostitution or solicitation charge, you will likely face Class A misdemeanor charges, punishable by:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Up to $4,000 in monetary fines

For more serious offenses, such as running a prostitution enterprise, you can face felony charges. In Allen, felonies are punishable as follows.

State jail felony:

  • 6 months to 2 years in state jail
  • Up to $10,000 in monetary fines

Third-degree felony:

  • 2 to 10 years in prison
  • Up to $10,000 in monetary fines

Second-degree felony:

  • 2 to 20 years in prison
  • Up to $10,000 in monetary fines

First-degree felony:

  • 5 to 99 years in prison (life)
  • Up to $10,000 in monetary fines

You must also pay court costs and perform any court-ordered community service, serve probation, and attend education, counseling, or treatment programs.

The prosecutor may also attempt to add additional charges or increase the level of charges. For example, if you had a weapon or firearm in your possession, you may face aggravated charges and increased penalties, even if you did not pull, brandish, or use the weapon.

You May Have to Register as a Sex Offender for Prostitution & Sex Crimes

In Texas, you must register as a sex offender for most sex crimes, for a period that ranges from ten years to life.

Once you register, your personal information will appear in the sex offender database maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety’s (TxDPS). Anyone who conducts a background check on you will have access to your record.

You can legally be denied employment and housing as well as professional licensure. With most felony convictions, you will also lose the right to vote or own a firearm.

Undergoing Assessment for Sex Offender Risk

If the prosecutor obtains a conviction, or if you agree to deferred adjudication, you will likely have to register as a sex offender for the following offenses. These are known as “reportable offenses:”

  • Sexual assault
  • Online solicitation of a minor
  • Possession of child pornography
  • Kidnapping of a minor
  • Aggravated kidnapping for intended sexual abuse
  • Human trafficking
  • Compelling prostitution
  • Continuous sexual abuse of a child

You must undergo a risk assessment for reportable offenses. The assessment is conducted by the Texas Sex Offender Rehabilitation Program (SORP) or your probation officer and involves extensive questioning.

Your assessment is in the form of a risk score of Low, Medium, High, or Civil Commitment. This determines how long you must register and who the state must notify in your community.
