Prostitution involves one person accepting some form of monetary payment from another in exchange for sexual intercourse or other sexual acts. Solicitation is the seeking out and propositioning one for such an exchange. While a sexual act must be engaged in in order for one to be charged with prostitution, this is not the case with solicitation.
If an agreement was made between the two parties and payment was exchanged, those involved can be arrested and charged immediately. Law enforcement and prosecutors in our state do not take these offenses lightly, and they will frequently pursue the maximum punishment should one's case go to trial.
The Penalties for Prostitution or Solicitation
Should you be convicted of prostitution or solicitation, you could face penalties that include stiff fines, probation, court enforced counseling, community service, and jail time. You will have a stronger chance of avoiding these penalties if you retain the services of a competent lawyer, rather than facing your charges alone.
