Florida Solicitation Penalties

Solicitation of prostitution is defined as soliciting, inducing, enticing, or procuring another person to engage in prostitution. This crime is a first-degree misdemeanor. An individual can be charged with this crime without money being exchanged or any sexual acts being performed. Solicitation of prostitution can be brought against a person as long as the mere offer of money in exchange for sexual services is evident.

A conviction for this sex crime carries the following mandatory penalties:

  • Civil fine of $5,000
  • 100 hours of community service
  • Attend a prostitution and human trafficking awareness course
  • Undergo testing for sexually transmitted infections

A conviction for this sex crime can also lead to the following penalties:

  • Maximum one-year jail sentence
  • Up to one year of probation
  • Criminal fines not exceeding $1,000

A person charged with a second offense for solicitation of prostitution may be charged with a third degree felony, and a person charged with a third offense may be charged with a second degree felony. Subsequent solicitation charges also carry mandatory jail sentences, hefty fines, and vehicle immobilization or impoundment.

Having a criminal record can ruin your professional reputation and personal life. You could have a difficult time finding or keeping a job, applying for college, finding housing, and taking advantage of other opportunities in life.

  • Very responsive and available.

    “This guy is fantastic. There isn't another attorney I would rather have standing next to me in the courtroom. His straight shooter, no nonsense approach was reassuring. I knew I had hired the right guy when, at our first court appearance he was praised (almost gushed over) by the judge for his "excellent writing abilities" and someone with a "bright future ahead". At that moment I knew Greg was my man. What other lawyer responds to a mistaken text sent at 11:30pm? Outstanding service. Very responsive and available. Unpaid endorsement from a satisfied client.”

He was a tireless advocate for my brother and truly cared about his case. I've never seen an attorney work as hard or as diligently for his client. He was successful in securing a dismissal of all charges, which in our federal court system, is an amazing feat in and of itself.
