New York prostitution laws classify crimes of prostitution based upon the severity of the crime.
Ninety percent of prosecuted sex crimes are for prostitution, with clients only being arrested about ten percent of the time. There is still a school of thought that considers prostitutes as hardcore criminals because of the spread of disease. A conviction for prostitution may result in a sentence including three months in jail and a $500 fine. The law does not discriminate over sexual orientation or gender while prosecuting.
