Perhaps someday, the New York Assembly will legalize sex work several political candidates have recently promised to take steps toward legalization.
Of course, it is also illegal to promote prostitution i. Law enforcement has long sought, with mixedto combat prostitution offenses in New York City.
Police would also go undercover and pose as johns to get prostitutes to make illegal offers of sexual conduct for fees. Police officers continue to pose as prostitutes to entice johns to make illegal offers, though nowadays they are more likely to find a target inside of a nice establishment in the city instead of on the sidewalk. These sting victims oftentimes have legitimate entrapment defenses, but not after already having been humiliated and having had their livelihoods placed in danger as a result of the arrests.
With the advent of the internet, much of the prostitution business moved online to websites like Craigslist and Back. Prostitutes and escorts would post on these sites and johns would simply call them to make appointments. The postings were so numerous that despite some law enforcement efforts to make undercover arrests of these prostitutes — and perhaps more effectively, arrests of johns via false prostitution — the sheer volume of on these sites made it impossible to realistically stop the trade via undercover operations.
Many women who do not consider themselves to be prostitutes up to participate on websites like sugardaddy. In a way, these sugar babies and sugar daddies essentially exist within a gray area of the law.
These relationships are not always explicitly sex-in-exchange-for-money relationships, though these elements are typically understood by the parties to be fundamental to the relationship. It could even be said that these relationships are not so different from the typical relationship between a wealthy man and his wife. But regardless of the legality of these relationships and they are generally questionable under existing lawlaw enforcement would have difficulty curbing these relationships.
After all, the typical relationship between a baby and a daddy can take several dates before sexual contact or the discussion sexual contact or money begins. As such, it would be difficult for law enforcement officers to invest that much time in pursuing a potential arrest in a sugar baby or sugar daddy. This further frustrates law enforcement efforts to pursue these sorts of cases, as they would need an explicit statement to make an arrest.
Of course, it is still theoretically possible that an undercover police officer could pose as a sugar daddy or sugar baby to catch someone interested in an illegal relationship. However, for now, our attorneys are unaware of any such arrests being made by law enforcement in New York. If you or a loved one have need of the services or advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney, you should strongly consider contacting the attorneys at the Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo.
