Under California Penal Code Section 647(b), it is illegal to solicit, agree to engage in or engage in any act of prostitution. Solicitation of prostitution is described as urging, inducing or enticing another person to engage in an act of prostitution. The person soliciting must have a specific intent to engage in an act of prostitution, and both the prostitute and the customer can be solicitors.
How do you know if you have broken a Los Angeles County Solicitation Law?
As a simple example, if a man approaches a woman in a bar and tells her that he will pay her $150 if she will have sex with him, he is guilty of soliciting prostitution even if the deal does not go through.Solicitation is charged as a misdemeanor offense under California law. As such, the penalties can include up to six months in county jail, a maximum fine of $1,000, probation, counseling, AIDS testing, community service, physical labor, driver’s license suspension and vehicle impoundment. The penalties will be more severe if a minor is involved or if the defendant is a repeat offender.
