#1 Los Angeles Pimping And Pandering Lawyer | Cyrus Tabibnia


Pimping and pandering are serious criminal offenses in the state of California that are covered under California Penal Code Sections 266h and 266i. These crimes involve facilitating and receiving financial benefits from commercial sex acts or prostitution. If you have been accused of these sexual offenses, it is important to consult with a Los Angeles sex crime defense attorney from our highly-respected law firm.

Pimping, as defined under California Penal Code Section 266h, refers to someone who knowingly receives financial support or compensation from the earnings of someone engaged in prostitution or receives compensation for soliciting on behalf of a prostitute. On the other hand, pandering, as defined under California Penal Code Section 266i, involves procuring another person for the purposes of prostitution, encouraging someone to become a prostitute, finding a job in a “house of prostitution,” or encouraging someone to continue working in such a house, among other acts.


While both offenses are closely related, they have different elements under the California Penal Code. Pimping is concerned with the receipt of compensation, usually in the form of money, by the “pimp.” On the other hand, pandering is primarily concerned with facilitating and encouraging prostitution. In most cases, both charges are brought against the same defendant.


Pimping and pandering are felony offenses that carry severe penalties in California. These include:

1) 3, 4, or 6 years in a state prison,

2) a $10,000 fine, or both.

If the commercial sex acts in question involve a minor, the penalties can be significantly increased. In addition, a charge of human trafficking may also be brought, which carries a possible sentence of life imprisonment.


If you have been accused of pimping or pandering, there are several legal defenses that can be raised by a skilled sex crime attorney. These include proving that:

1) accusation is false,

2) or there is insufficient evidence of your intent.

Fact-specific defenses may also be used to rebut an accusation of pimping or pandering, depending on the particular arrangements, agreements, and relationships between the alleged pimp or panderer and their prostitute(s).


It is important to remember that just an accusation of pimping or pandering can have significant negative consequences on your reputation and future opportunities. Therefore, it is essential to consult with a Los Angeles sex crime defense lawyer from our law firm to assess the strength of the evidence against you and formulate the strongest possible defense to the charges. Remember, if you have been accused of pimping or pandering, do not make any statements to the police and remain silent until you have consulted with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

    Several years ago, I was contending with a serious legal issue. Out of the blue, I became aware that a corporation had obtained a large civil money judgment against me, in court, and on a case I was not aware of. When I became apprised of the judgment and the company's efforts to enforce the debt against me, I became angry and concerned. How would this case and judgment affect my financial future? Was there any way to fix this? I approached several other attorneys for assistance, but they all said the same thing: that because the judgment was over a year old (almost 2 years old, actually) it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove the judgment and to re-open the case. Given what other attorneys had told me about my case, I was not hopeful. But I decided to turn to and hire the Tabibnia Law Firm because I was aware of their strong reputation in both civil law matters and criminal defense cases. Mr. Tabibnia went out of his way to fight for me. To my great surprise, he convinced the court to set aside the judgment against me and to re-open the case. And months after getting the case re-opened, I was astonished when he then got the case completely dismissed! So, I went from having a large money judgment against me to getting the judgment removed and case dismissed in a matter of months. Throughout the process, I found Mr. Tabibnia to be honest, aggressive, competent and extremely fair with his fees. Most importantly, he kept me informed throughout the case. I cannot recommend the Tabibnia Law Firm highly enough.

    Having never needed a lawyer before, and being very scared and confused, I reached out to Cyrus after reading some outstanding reviews online. Cyrus gave me peace of mind and made me feel like I was in good hands. I highly recommend and I will probably use them again for any future legal needs that may arise. Thank you Cyrus.

    I am here, writing on the behalf of Mr. Cyrus Tabibnia. From the very first moment we formally introduced ourselves to one another, I felt nothing but sincerity and authenticity from this man. At that very moment I knew, that this was the person ideal to represent me and to do diligence. In which in fact he did do so. He was able to significantly get my DUI and Car Theft charges reduced from felonies to misdemeanors and with one case, completely dismissed. I was not only impressed and satisfied completely, but I was not suprised one bit with the outcome. I highly suggest this gentlemen if you are in deed seeking counsel from someone who legitimately cares, and who will go the extra mile and above and beyond for you.
