Prostitution or soliciting in massage parlours, saunas, steam baths, exercise facilities, or other premises used for photography is deemed an offence under section 16 of the Summary Offences Act 1988 (NSW), carrying a maximum penalty of 3 months imprisonment. For the prosecution to prove this offence, they must establish beyond reasonable doubt that the individual engaged in prostitution or solicited prostitution within the mentioned establishments. If you can demonstrate to the court, on the balance of probabilities, that you had lawful authority for such conduct, you will not be found guilty. Furthermore, the defence of duress can be relied upon to challenge the charge.
