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.

  • Highly recommend Greg!

    “I don’t believe that words can put into perspective just how much Greg has helped me this last year. Not only did he assist me with other legal matters (driver license reinstatement, traffic tickets etc) that were unrelated to the serious felonies I was facing, he was happy to do so, and did it with compassion and loving kindness. I was facing two second degree felonies and a couple of third degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks. highly recommend Greg!”

  • I can't say enough about Greg and his commitment to his clients.

    “I can't say enough about Greg and his commitment to his clients. I needed some legal help and randomly came across Greg. In large part, he was the most responsive and that is very important to me. At the time, I did not realize how lucky I was!! He met with me on a moment’s notice and assured me not to worry and I was in good hands. Greg handled everything for me and did exactly what he said he would do. If I ever need legal assistance in the future Greg will be my first call. Not only was he professional in every aspect, but he also kept me informed every step of the way. I never wondered what was happening. I never had to run him down. Text, phone, or email, he reassured me before I could even ask the questions. I feel like I have made a friend in Greg and certainly would recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance!!!”
