Daytona Beach Prostitution Lawyer
In criminal law, solicitation is the act of offering, or attempting to purchase, goods or services. Legal status may be specific to the time or place where solicitation occurs.
Solicitation of prostitution is technically the request to one person by another to perform a sexual act in exchange for a fee. However, an actual solicitation of prostitution charge usually encompasses a wider set of circumstances with harsher penalties and punishments than the basic charge. A person charged with solicitation of prostitution should understand the nature of these charges, the defenses, and all of the possible punishments before deciding how to resolve their case. If you have been charged with this criminal act then you will greatly benefit from the legal assistance of a Daytona Beach prostitution lawyers from Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A.
A person does not have to engage in sexual conduct, it is enough if it can be proven that you agreed to pay money for some type of sexual conduct or agree to perform some kind of sexual act in exchange for money. You can be charged with solicitation by reaching an agreement to exchange money or something of value for a sexual act in return.
In order to prove the charges at trial, the prosecutor must prove each of the following elements beyond all reasonable doubt:
- The defendant committed the act;
- The defendant agreed to secure, offered to secure, or offered another person;
- For the purpose of prostitution or for the purpose of any lewd or indecent act.
Under Statute § 796.036, if the person is found guilty of soliciting for the purpose of prostitution (or any lewd or indecent act) then certain enhanced penalties can apply if any of the following additional elements are proven:
- A minor was engaged in the sexual conduct, assignation, lewdness, prostitution, or other conduct prohibited in Chapter 796; and
- The minor was not the person charged in this case
