So you've been arrested for solicitation of prostitution.
It doesn't have to define you.
SEX BUYERS TRANSFORMATION AND RESTORATION PROGRAM
The S.T.A.R. program is designed
specifically for arrested sex-buyers.
The S.T.A.R. program is implemented by a buyer-informed non-profit organization called Love People Not Pixels (LPNP). LPNP’s mission is to fight the demand for human trafficking.
In exchange for selecting to participate in the S.T.A.R. program’s 2-hour orientation class, the DA's office in the city or county you were arrested in may seek reduced penalties on the prostitution charge(s) you are facing.
Have your defense attorney contact your DA's office to see if the S.T.A.R. program is available in your area.
Program Orientation Cost: $495
Buyer must self-select a partner who will attend the initial 2 hour orientation class with them.
Buyer and sponsor must attend and participate in a 2-hour program orientation.
Buyer and partner freely choose to participate in the S.T.A.R. program post orientation class and agree to have quarterly check ins with LPNP.
Buyer and partner both agree to be interviewed by LPNP 6 months after the initial orientation class.
To take advantage of this program, follow the following steps:

Frequently Asked Questions About the
Where and when is the STAR program orientation class offered?
Class locations and dates can be found on the registration page. Click the "Sign Up" button above to see our available upcoming classes.
Can anyone enroll in the STAR program?
Anyone who has purchased sex, whether arrested or not, can sign up for the S.T.A.R. program. The only requirement is the desire to stop the behavior of purchasing sex. For men facing open charges, it is up to the DA's office prosecuting their case to decide if enrolling in the S.T.A.R. program may reduce the penalties they are facing. LPNP has no control over that.
What is a partner and who can I select?
A partner is someone who has a personal relationship with the person enrolling in the S.T.A.R. program. The buyer's partner must be 18 years and older. They may be family member or personal friend.
Why do I need to have a partner?
While there is not a single path for everyone to take, one common point we have seen is that no one finds success alone. The need to share what you are going through, to invite someone into your journey and to give them permission to support you is an absolute necessity.
Can I opt out of having a partner and just enroll in the program by myself?
Does my partner need to attend the initial live 2-hour class with me?
Is there a minimum standard of program participation that is required after the orientation class?
One thing is for sure, only men who want help get help. At the orientation class, you and your partner will be introduced to the full components, resources and opportunities available to help you. Whether you and your partner take advantage of this is up to you.
Will the program fee (or any portion) be refunded if the buyer and their partner fail to show up at the orientation class?
No. However, on a case by case basis, you and your partner may be able to register for a future orientation class. However, we can't guarantee there will be one in your area or within the timeframe you may need as required by the DA's office.
Are payment plans offered?
No, the program fee must be paid in full prior to the initial 2-hour class.
Will the charge of prostitution remain on my record?
