What are pandering charges?
Pandering is a crime that involves someone convincing or coercing another person to be a prostitute, as the ARS 13-3209 explains. Though often closely connected to pimping, pandering is a separate crime and can lead to time in jail or prison.
Pandering can be:
- Defrauding someone into engaging in prostitution
- Using someone's debt to force them into prostitution
- Attempting to convince someone to engage in prostitution
- Causing your spouse to engage in prostitution
