I Never Paid Money Or Received Sex; How Am I Being Charged With Prostitution?
In Texas, prostitution is defined as one of two things: an agreement to receive a fee in exchange for sex, or an agreement to pay a fee in exchange for sex. This means that money does not need to be paid, and an actual sex act does not need to occur in order for you to be charged with prostitution. In the context of a sting, the police attempt to just get someone to agree, because once there’s been an agreement, the police can initiate the arrest. If the exchange is via email, enough evidence could be obtained from the email exchange alone, but the police would probably want to do it in person in order to confirm the identity of the person who is sending the email. It is in fact very rare in Texas that someone would be charged when a sex act had actually occurred, and infrequently is money actually exchanged, because it’s simply not necessary, and police officers involved in a sting are not interested in letting it go that far.
