Promoting prostitution, or “pimping,” is a Class 4 felony. The charge can become a Class 3 felony when committed within 1,000 feet of a school. Both charges can lead to extremely harsh punishments.

The crime is defined as:

  • Forcing someone to become a prostitute
  • Arranging or offering to organize a situation in which someone can practice prostitution
  • Trying to convince another to take part in prostitution
  • Allowing a place under his/ her control to be used for prostitution
  • Allowing an area under his/ her control to be used when the circumstances suggest it will be used for prostitution


The lightest possible sentence for promoting prostitution is 1 to 3 years of incarceration. A fine might also be imposed. The charges go up from there. If you are convicted of a Class 3 felony, you could get 2 to 5 years in prison in addition to legal fines. If your charge involved minors or mentally disabled people, the offense is a Class 1 felony, which can lead to incarceration from 5 to 15 years. The most severe punishments are imposed on individuals who advance juvenile prostitution within 1,000 feet of a school; these defendants would be accused of a Class X felony, which can lead to anywhere from 6 to 60 years in prison.
