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.

  • I was incredibly impressed with his preparation, his poise, and his professionalism.

    “Greg represented my brother in court on a probation violation charge. I was incredibly impressed with his preparation, his poise, and his professionalism. 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. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone - he is an excellent attorney and a good, kind and decent human being.”

  • It's no wonder he was rated one of the top lawyers in the UNITED STATES!

    “I was faced with two second-degree felonies and a couple of third-degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks and breakdowns. Greg was always there to help me through it in any way he could. I called him after hours, on weekends, in the middle of the night, and he never hesitated to respond and assist me in whatever I needed help with. There is a reason why he is rated so highly on multiple platforms, with some of them regarded very prestigiously in the law community. He goes above and beyond to fight for you, and them beyond some more. Upon hiring Greg, he strategized a game plan, broke it down into simpler terms for me to understand, and through the course of a year, we executed that gam plan. Even with some curve balls thrown in, AKA unexpected issues, such as me catching a DUI while out on bail for 5 pending felonies, he was there for me, and reassured me that everything will be okay. The end result: Greg negotiated with the prosecutor to DROP the main felony charge, have them give me credit for the time I already served AND the days I spent in rehab, AND 3 years of probation, with the possibility of early termination at half, some community service, and restitution. NO other lawyer could have gotten this done. It is literally a miracle that I am not on house arrest right now, let alone incarcerated. Greg fought hard for me, and he achieved something that was close to a miracle. He is a godsend, and you can tell that he truly cares for you, as a person first and a client second. I would highly recommend hiring Greg for your legal issues. He is just short of a miracle worker, a very powerful, formidable and reputable lawyer to have on your side, and a true friend. He is definitely top three defense lawyers in palm beach, if not number one. But his compassion for the client and his genuine concern for you as a person, combined with his expertise, reputation, and skill sets make him by far the top lawyer in not only palm beach, but possibly south Florida.”

  • He's simply the best.

    “I have never ever met an attornery that is so passionate about getting his clients results LIKE Mr. Rosenfeld. I wish i could explain my previous legal situation in full detail but due to my own discretion i choose not to. Nevertheless, Greg was able to get me an early termination from a 10 year felony probation sentence. Prior to Greg, i was hiring and firing lawyers that were demmed to be the best in the business. When you're fighting for your life against the judicial system you want to make sure that your attorney is as hungry and passionate about getting you off as you are. Greg is a fighter. I reccomend him to everyone that i know. I'm not sure what his overall success rate is but i've reccomended at least two other people that are overally satistied with his results. There's a ton of attorneys out there, but Greg really fights for you. Trust me, i know and seen him do it for me. He's simply the best. These days i'm not breaking the law but i got Greg on speed dial.”
