Parsippany Woman Arrested for Prostitution

 The term consensual sex crime is also known as a victimless sex crime because in these crimes there is usually no direct victim.  In most consensual sex crimes, the only people who are involved are willing and consenting adults.  For example, common consensual sex crimes include prostitution, solicitation, and pandering.  Unlike sexual assault, lewd conduct, or harassment, there is not an adversely affected party, only an illegal act.  For a more detailed illustration, consider a recent New Jersey case in which a woman was arrested for prostitution at a Smith Road Hotel.  Police received several tips that the woman was selling sex from the hotel and conducted a two week investigation in which the woman offered to sell the police officer sex for $450 per hour.  Had this deal been made with a civilian instead of an officer, it probably would have gone through.  Both parties would have benefited from the illegal agreement and as long as the adults were both willing and capable of consent, there would not have been a direct victim.  This is the reason why these types of criminal acts are referred to as consensual or victimless sex crimes. In spite of this, the police would arrest both the prostitute and the customer!
