In Minnesota, it is a crime to offer money to engage in sexual contact with another person. Sexual contact includes intercourse, oral sex or fondling. It is very important to understand that actually engaging in sexual contact is not necessary to be charged with the crime. The crime occurs when the State obtains evidence that the offer for sexual contact is made. This is most often accomplished when the person completes text message or telephone exchanges to arrange for the sexual contact. The arrest generally occurs when that person shows up at the agreed upon time and place, even though no sexual contact occurs.

A first offense is generally a Misdemeanor, meaning it is punishable by 90 days in jail, a $1000.00 fine or both. But, if it is a second offense within two years of a prior conviction, the charge can be a Gross Misdemeanor. The punishment for this charge can be one year in jail, a $3000.00 fine or both. It can also be a Gross Misdemeanor if the arranged location is a “public” place such as a motel.

If you are behind on your mortgage payment or car loan, a Chapter 7 will not bring you current. However, there may be other options available to you., like Chapter 13.

It is also important to keep in mind that a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy may not protect all of your assets. If you own multiple homes with a lot of equity in them or other valuable assets such as boats or vehicles without loans against them, the bankruptcy trustee will either sell the item and use the proceeds to pay some of your creditors, or negotiate with you to receive the cash equivalent of the asset. We can help you negotiate with the trustee if this situation arises.

If you find yourself in this type of situation, where you have unprotected assets that you want to keep, it may be better to do some pre-bankruptcy planning or look into a Chapter 13 payment plan.
