Harlot's Parlour: False arrests happen to us, too

Harlot’s Parlour: False arrests happen to us, too.

Sometimes prostitution laws are used against people who are not engaged in
prostitution. This has been happening in gay porn shops around New York,
and we applaud the lawsuit regarding these false arrests. However, we hope
the victims appreciate how unjust these laws are when prostitutes are
arrested.

False arrests happen to sex workers every day. You may have a prostitution
record and still be caught in a sweep when you’re not actively soliciting.
You may be falsely charged when your workplace is raided.
