How much experience does our firm have defending against prostitution charges?

Robert Ernenwein has over 30 years of experience defending individual clients in the South Bay, Torrance, and Lomita who have been accused of violating California Penal Code Section 647 (b), commonly known as “Prostitution”. Robert Ernenwein is a Board Certified Criminal Law Expert and is a former prosecutor who has been named as a “Super Lawyer” for several years. He is an experienced Prostitution Defense Lawyer in Torrance, Lomita and other South Bay cities.

Robert Ernenwein is a former Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney who knows who to talk to and what to ask for to get your case dismissed. We will conduct our own investigation into your case to build a strong defense on your behalf. Our team understands that being accused of a sex crime can be embarrassing and if you are convicted, it can be life changing.

We have represented thousands of clients, from all walks of life, who have been accused of the following:

  • Date rape
  • Statutory rape
  • Child molestation
  • Lewd conduct
  • Prostitution
  • Pimping
  • Sex with a minor
  • Internet cases
  • Exhibitionism
  • Voyeurism
  • Sexual assault

What must the government show to prove that I am guilty of prostitution?

In order for a jury to find you guilty of prostitution, in violation of California Penal Code section 647(b), the prosecution must prove that you willfully engaged in sexual intercourse or a lewd act with someone else in exchange for money (or some other compensation).

A lewd act occurs when the defendant has touched the genitals, buttocks or female breast of either the prostitute or the customer with some part of the other person’s body. Further, the touching must be for the purpose of sexually arousing or gratifying either person. Someone does this willfully when he or she does it either willingly or on purpose.

What defenses can Robert Ernenwein use to protect me from a conviction?

One common defense against a prostitution charge is entrapment, because persons accused of prostitution are often caught in sting operations or arrested by decoy police officers. To show that entrapment occurred, the defense must show that the police officer engaged in conduct that would cause an otherwise law-abiding person to commit prostitution. If the law enforcement officer badgered, or used flattery to persuade you into committing prostitution, or otherwise made some appeal to sympathy or friendship, and you committed the crime but otherwise would not have done so, we may be able to have your case dismissed via pre-trial dismissal or acquittal at trial
