First time offenders typically plead to one of the prostitution-related offenses and are sentenced to probation. As part of their plea deal, they are required to attend Johns’ School – a half day class where they are taught about the legal, safety, and public health consequences of prostitution. Through the Johns’ School, men are put into contact with resources for treating sex addiction. Convicted buyers are also required to undergo HIV testing.
Fortunately, few buyers are re-arrested in the City of Dayton. Those who are may face jail time of up to 60 days and a fine of up to $500, at the discretion of the judge. The court may also choose to impose a two-year driver’s license suspension.
