What should I do after getting arrested for soliciting a prostitute?

I have no prior arrests or anything of that nature, got caught soliciting a prostitute who ended up being a cop undercover. They arrested me on the spot and brought me to the station. I really would like to avoid going to jail and having my family and employer find out about this.

    If you hire an attorney, you should only need to go to court on the day that you are sentenced. Your attorney may get you a plea bargain offer that does not involve the stigma of a solicitation charge. Depending on the facts, your attorney may get the charges dropped or a not guilty at trial. Hire an attorney. An attorney will give you better advice after reviewing the evidence against you.

    You need to hire a lawyer. This will probably be reduced to a lesser charge, depending on the county and the DA. Your employer or family should not find out unless there is a background check, if you have a job which requires yearly checks or unless you are in an area where they publish the names of people arrested in the area. You can get the mandatory AIDS test, after conviction, at a clinic run by people you do not know so you doctor does not disclose the information.

    What should you do? Defend the charges. When charged with any crime, the proper questions are, can any evidence obtained in a search or statement be used against you, can you be convicted, and what can you do? If you don't know how to represent yourself effectively against an experienced prosecutor intending to convict, then hire an attorney who does, who will try to get a dismissal, charge reduction, diversion, programs, or other decent outcome through motions, plea bargain, or take it to trial if appropriate.
