Is prostitution a misdemeanor or a felony in Texas?

Prostitution is a Class B misdemeanor, but there are three exceptions:

  2. If the defendant has previously been convicted 3-4 times for prostitution, it will be a state jail felony
  3. If the defendant solicited an individual for prostitution who was younger than 18 or who they believed to be under 18, prostitution can be charged as a felony of the second degree
