Fear of Criminal Charges Can Prevent Sex Workers from Reporting CrimesThe sex worker industry is booming throughout the Bay Area, the same as it is in other places throughout the state and across the U.S. Unfortunately, the fact that prostitutes are engaged in illegal activities makes them a target for acts of violence. Perpetrators know that they will be reluctant to report violent incidents or issues concerning forced sex work and trafficking out of fear of facing criminal charges themselves. As experienced San Jose criminal defense attorneys, we represent sex workers in these types of cases. We provide the legal representation victims need, providing caring support and legal protection while bringing those responsible to justice.  

Crimes Against Sex Workers in San Jose

A string of violent rapes committed against prostitutes highlights the potential dangers sex workers face in our area and the reluctance they often feel in reporting crimes to local law enforcement. A 24-year-old Morgan Hill man was arrested and is accused of beating and raping numerous women over the course of the summer months.  

The suspect allegedly picked up the women in various locations throughout downtown San Jose. Once he got them into his vehicle, he would take them to remote locations where he would physically and sexually assault them. Three victims came forward after the attacks. In addition to physical descriptions of the suspect and his vehicle, rape kits administered link him to the assaults via DNA evidence. Unfortunately, local law enforcement officials claim that there may be numerous other sex workers who are victims out there, as the suspect appears to be a serial rapist. However, many of them may be reluctant to come forward for fear of facing criminal charges.
