Solicitation of Prostitution Charges
Under Florida law, it is illegal to solicit, entice or induce another person to engage in the act of prostitution. The severity of the criminal charges will depend on a variety of factors including whether the alleged prostitute was under the age of 18.
Defenses in Prostitution Cases
Prostitution arrests often result from sting operations involving undercover police officers. The undercover officer usually discusses an exchange of sex for money with the accused. However, police have a tendency to jump the gun and make an arrest before an agreement is made.
Encounters with undercover officers are typically recorded. Our lawyers will listen to the tape and determine if the act of solicitation was completed before you were arrested. If the act of solicitation was not completed, it is possible that the charges against you can be dropped.
Even if you did complete the act of solicitation of prostitution, you may have an entrapment defense. Entrapment is getting someone to do something he or she was not otherwise predisposed to do.
