  • Possession of condoms
  • Possession of a large amount of cash/types of bills
  • Possession of cell phones/pagers
  • Possession of a ‘client list’
  • Location, dress, suspicious activity

While these charges are usually misdemeanors, unless you have prior convictions, in which case you may be facing a felony charge.
