Thank you for your question.


It may be very difficult to get off if they can show that you rented the hotel room for use during your date. (Also, if your escort was the arresting officer, chances are some sort of conversation occurred wherein she believed that she would get paid for performing sexual services.) However, your ability to get out of this charge may involve the retention of an attorney who can make a legal or semantic argument about your intentions not involving sex or prostitution (however, whether this argument can be made will depend on the detailed facts of what happened in and after contacting the escort agency). Your other option to get out of this may be to see whether a plea agreement is available from the prosecuting attorney.
