Prostitution: The Law Is Tricky

Hosted by the Hon. Richard Ginkowski

The dictionary defines prostitution as "engaging in sexual intercourse for money."  Judge Richard Ginkowski, Gavel Talks host, discusses what judges should know about prostitution law, including what conduct may -- and may not be -- unlawful ("the devil is in the detail") and possible defenses including entrapment (often raised but rarely successful), outrageous police conduct, being a victim of human trafficking and equal protection issues in police enforcement and prosecution (notably gender discrimination).
