Legality of being a driver for an escort

I was looking at a job offer to be a driver for an escort in OH. I was wondering what the legality of this is. Is it illegal to driver escorts to their clients? What are the potential legal risks/charges that could be filed against me and what level of charges could those be?

You could be charged with aiding and abetting or faciliating prostitution: if an escort is paid for sex, that's prostitution, and if you drive her to/from her appointments, you are assisting her in prostitution. Legally, you'd be the same as someone who is a pimp or an assistant in a whorehouse or prostitution ring. Let her take cabs or Ubers--i.e. be driven by someone who does NOT know what she does, since it is that knowledge that makes you liable.
