First, you need to discuss your case with an attorney. There are a lot of defenses available with the scenario you described, but as a general rule, if you are just giving a ride to a friend, it is difficult to demonstrate that you are promoting prostitution. However, if there are more facts, such as that the police witnessed her/him soliciting prior to you picking her up, then you can be charged based on circumstantial evidence.
