In Missouri, soliciting a prostitute, patronizing a prostitute or promoting a prostitute are serious crimes. Charges can range from class B misdemeanors to class B felonies. All have potential jail time, embarrassment and fines. Some prosecutors are even pushing for AIDS testing and court ordered counseling.
