Prostitution Penalties in New York

You can be charged with prostitution if you engage in, agree to engage in, or offer to engage in sexual acts with another individual in exchange for money. Prostitution is considered a Class B misdemeanor, which is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of three months and a fine of up to $500.

However, if the prostitution occurred in a school zone, it is considered a Class A misdemeanor. A Class A misdemeanor is punishable by a jail sentence of up to one year and a fine of up to $1,000.
