Having sex in spa and massage palor in NYC ,rape charge appear after the sex agreement.

Asked about 2 years ago - Flushing, NY

My friend had sex in massage palor with masseuse after massage with agreement on money, he did it frequently but the last time the masseuse knew of his ID and is trying to squeeze money on the charge of raping her.
on which account is possible for him to face with ?
Patronizing prostitute or raping a masseuse ?
Whatever we could name it , the masseuse worked as a sex worker upon the money bargain so he doesn't think that it would be a cause.
How can he solve anyway?

    Answered . Sex for money is illegal but if he is being extorted for money something should be done. He should contact the police but not on his own. It may be prudent to consult with an attorney and have him/her be his spokesperson.

    Answered . If the woman claims rape and he defends himself with the claim that she was a prostitute, it would be up to a jury to decide who was telling the truth.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Whether he can be charged and whether they can prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt are separate issues. If she claims he forcibly raped her the police may arrest him and charge him with rape. It's best that he consults with an experienced criminal lawyer and discuss all of the facts confidentially.
