Escort without a License
Working as an Escort without a License is a crime in Los Angeles normally charged in relation to an arrest for prostitution. It is charged under Los Angeles Municipal Code 103.107.1 and in essence states that no person shall work as an escort unless they have an authorized license to do so. In other words, it is not illegal to be or act as an escort as long as you have a license. Escorting without a License is charged by prosecutors who generally cannot prosecute and convict the escort or the prostitute with standard acts of prostitution such as agreeing to engage in sex or
solicitation found in California Penal Code section 647 (b). Working as an Escort without a License is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in county jail and a $1000 fine.
