Fighting Damaging Inducement Charges
Inducement is the act of influencing another person to engage in prostitution. In other words, it’s a crime to convince another person to engage in sex acts for money. While adults can be influenced by another person to take part in prostitution, inducement is frequently seen in child prostitution. Whether the victim is a child or adult, inducing a person into the act of prostitution by word or action can result in a criminal charge. If you have been accused of inducement, you need to speak to an experienced Minneapolis prostitution defense lawyer as soon as possible.
