Iowa defines pimping as the crime that is committed when a person “solicits a patron for a prostitute, or who knowingly takes or shares in the earnings of a prostitute, or who knowingly furnishes a room or other place to be used for the purpose of prostitution, whether for compensation or not.” As stated in Iowa Code Section 725.2, pimping is a Class D felony.

Class D felonies like pimping are punishable by up to 5 years in prison, or probation, a fine, or time in the county jail. In addition to the criminal consequences of a conviction for pimping, there can be significant other effects upon a person who is convicted. As an example, a conviction for pimping can cause problems in terms of employment, housing, etc.

For each of those reasons, a charge of pimping in Iowa is a serious matter. Properly handling a pimping charge the right way can be the difference between a favorable outcome or an unfavorable outcome, and for that reason any person with such a charge is well advised to seek an attorney at once.
