In Missouri, it is considered a criminal offense to buy or sell sex for
money. People commit the

Performing the act of prostitution is classified as a Class B misdemeanor,
punishable by a maximum jail sentence of six months and a fine of up to
$500. Patronizing (buying, agreeing to buy, or requesting sexual acts)
is also a Class B misdemeanor.
However, patronizing a person under 18 years old, but older than 14, is
a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year
and a fine of up to $1,000. Patronizing a person under the age of 14 is
a Class D felony, punishable by a maximum prison sentence of four years
