Solicitation/Patronizing

SolicitationBeing accused of soliciting or patronizing a prostitute can be one of the most embarrassing and stressful crimes to face. These charges are more prevalent in some jurisdictions as opposed to others due to local law enforcement agencies conducting stings to catch potential customers (also commonly referred to as “Johns.”)

A solicitation charge is a misdemeanor which means the maximum penalty you can receive is a 90 day jail sentence and a $1,000 fine. In addition to that, courts will typically order probation, stay out of area instructions, a DNA test, and additional administrative fees and court costs which can push the total financial penalty above $1,000.

“Solicitation” is when an individual engages or agrees to or offers to engage in sexual conduct with another individual in return for a fee. The definition of sexual conduct is very broad. It includes any type of sexual contact, not just actual intercourse.  Any type of touching of sexual or intimate parts done with the intent of gratifying sexual desire of either party or a third party is deemed sexual conduct.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
