Oklahoma Internet Prostitution
The internet has become a venue where just about anything can be bought and sold, including sexual interaction. But it is important to remember that prostitution is illegal in Oklahoma, both in the streets and online.
Online Sting Operations
Law enforcement agencies are wise to the illicit activities that take place online, and federal and state agents often conduct sting operations through sites that promote or provide escort services. Websites like Craigslist and Backpage have become known havens for online prostitution and are heavily monitored by authorities.
If caught soliciting prostitution online, you could face a misdemeanor charge and be sentenced to 30 days in jail and a $2,500 fine. However, you could also be prosecuted under the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act, which could result in a felony charge carrying a five-year prison sentence and $5,000 fine.
