The lowest possible charge for engaging in prostitution is a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and up to 180 days in jail. If you have been convicted of prostitution one or two times before, or if you are being charged with promoting prostitution, you are likely going to be charged with a Class A misdemeanor. This is punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and up to 1 year in jail. Regardless of what you are charged with, if convicted, it will go on your criminal record.
