North Dakota prostitution offenses and considerations

Despite the fact that law enforcement agencies and prosecutors often regard criminal offenses like prostitution just as they would other crimes, criminal defense attorneys and victims’ rights advocates understand that they should be treated with a degree of compassion. Prostitution is often a crime of circumstance, and is linked to larger social and criminal issues like child abuse and sex trafficking. The attorneys at Dusek Law understand that those accused of engaging in prostitution are often victims as well, and advocate on behalf of their clients for fair representation and consideration under the law.

Prostitution and solicitation offenses are on the rise in the state of North Dakota. These types of sex crime convictions can have real and lasting implications for those involved, as they can affect everything from people’s rights to fair housing to their employment prospects. Beyond that, prioritizing criminal convictions over rehabilitation and social services can compound conditions that lead to sexual exploitation.

Discussing some of the conditions that have resulted in a spike in prostitution across the state, NPR explains that the region’s recent oil boom is a major factor. The Bakken region has experienced a huge influx of male workers employed with thriving oil companies, and that has in turn contributed to an increase in organized crime and prostitution. Beyond that, sex trafficking is a huge issue in the Midwest.

Task forces have been established by state and federal agencies throughout the region in order to combat human trafficking, but to little success so far. It is believed that a vast majority of prostitutes are recruited by pimps when they are between 13 and 14 years old. As a result, those advocating on behalf of trafficking victims argue that authorities should concentrate on rehabilitation efforts over prosecution of prostitution in the region.

Mounting a solid criminal defense case can make a huge difference in the long-term effects of being accused of sex crimes like prostitution. Learn more about prostitution defense techniques and other legal topics by visiting our web page today.
