How Does Colorado Law Define Prostitution?
Prostitution is the exchange of sexual acts with another person who is not a spouse for money or something of value. Prostitution charges can be filed in the absence of any sex act. The offer or agreement to perform a sex act for something of value can be enough to warrant prostitution charges under Colorado law.
What Are the Penalties for Prostitution in Colorado?
As a class 3 misdemeanor, prostitution can be punishable by up to $750 in fines and up to 6 months in jail for a first offense.
Here, it’s also crucial to point out that:
- There can be other penalties: Beyond the penalties from the court, there may be other negative consequences for a prostitution conviction, like (but not limited to) the revocation of professional licenses, serious damage to personal relationships, threats to immigration status, and more.
- Prostitution convictions are rarely expunged: Only under specific circumstances, like being forced into prostitution or being the victim of human trafficking, will Colorado criminal courts consider expunging prostitution convictions.
