Is Prostitution Legal in Virginia?

Prostitution and patronizing prostitutes are both illegal acts in Virginia and can come with serious legal ramifications. 

Common Types of Prostitution Offenses

There are several criminal acts associated with prostitution included in the Virginia criminal code. These statutes address not only those involved in the exchange of money for sex but those who may facilitate and ultimately benefit from this type of transaction.

The following crimes are related to prostitution:

  • Patronizing - paying money in exchange for sex
  • Solicitation - offering sex in exchange for money
  • Pimping - managing a prostitute's activities
  • Promoting - facilitating the purchase of sex
  • Pandering - receiving money from a prostitute's earnings

What Are the Penalties for Patronizing & Soliciting Prostitutes in Virginia?

Patronizing and solicitation are both considered Class 1 misdemeanors that can result in up to $25,000 in fines and/or up to one year in jail. Pimping, promoting, and pandering are considered Class 4 felonies that can result in up to $100,000 in fines and/or up to 10 years in prison.
