Friend was caught up in a potential sting. Was spending time nursing the now convicted prostitute (who was a friend) after a back surgery and was there daily administering medication and generally taking care of her, thus his visits were daily. Police tried to convince her to "flip" as they were convinced he was a John or a pimp - he was just helping her. She has since been convicted, but police persist.

In that case it is best to hire an attorney to ensure that during the investigation the individual does not make any incriminating statements and also to present a solid defense should the prosecution decide to prosecute. The statute of limitations runs from the date of the last offense.

The last offense I am told was at least 3 years ago, but they have both ended up being good friends and not engaged in any sexual activity. There is no evidence or trail of any illegal activity, although they have confiscated electronics etc. I keep telling him not to worry about it and to get a lawyer just in case.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No incriminating statements were made.

Yes, if electronics have been investigated and there is an ongoing investigation then it is best to hire an attorney; the statute of limitations vary depending on the crime so it is possible they are investigating a different crime with a longer statute of limitations.

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I don't think he has anything to worry about as he also has vast amounts of emails/text etc. with the hospital before, during and after the surgery as his reason for being there daily. There is no evidence I am told.

For example:

18-7-206. Pimping. Any person who knowingly lives on or is supported or maintained in whole or in part bymoney or other thing of value earned, received, procured, or realized by any other person through prostitution commits pimping, which is a class 3 felony.

That carries a 3 year statute of limitations.

Nope, none of that. He just got her through a very bad surgery.

Yes, I'm just letting you know the statute of limitations for the various offenses.

Thanks. I appreciate your help.

You are most welcome;

hope everything works out for your friend- but please encourage the retention of an attorney during any investigation.
