Prostitution or Sex Trafficking is a Rising Market in the Sin City

Las Vegas is one of the nation’s leading cities when it comes to fun and exciting night life. But a lot of that fun and excitement is totally illegal, which is why Las Vegas is also one of the leading cities for sex crimes and prostitution.

In order to prosecute for solicitation, it must be proven that the alleged offender offered or agreed to receive something of value in exchange for sexual intercourse. If it can be proven that no such exchange was involved, prostitution charges can be dropped on the grounds of voluntary, consensual intercourse.
