Understanding IC 35-45-4-4:
IC 35-45-4-4 defines promoting prostitution as a Level 5 felony. The statute encompasses various actions that involve knowingly or intentionally enticing, compelling, procuring, or permitting individuals to engage in prostitution or juvenile prostitution. From controlling the use of a place for such activities to receiving money earned from prostitution, the law covers a range of scenarios.
Crucially, if the person enticed or compelled is less than eighteen (18) years of age, the offense is elevated to a Level 4 felony under subdivision (1) of the statute. This highlights the severity of charges involving juvenile prostitution victims and underscores the importance of a robust legal defense.
