There are certain types of sexual behaviors in the United States that are considered unlawful. This can include behaviors such as engaging in non-consensual sex, engaging in sex for money, or soliciting sex by offering items of value in exchange for involvement with sexual activities.
Many sex crimes are punished at the state level. However, there are also federal laws on sex of-fenses including laws that impose punishments on those who engage in transportation for illegal sexual activities and related crimes.
If you are accused of violating any of these federal laws, you could face harsh penalties.
