Solicitation and Patronizing in Seattle

Patronizing Prostitution Lawyer

SolicitationBeing accused of patronizing or soliciting a prostitute can be embarrassing and stressful. The city of Seattle and other jurisdictions will conduct stings and surveillance of areas known for prostitution, such as portions of Aurora.

If you are facing a solicitation charge, do not hesitate to give our office a call to discuss your situation.

A solicitation/prostitution charge is considered a misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. However, penalties will also typically include administrative fees, probation, stay out of area orders, and even an HIV test.

The government defines “solicitation” as when a person either engages in or agrees to or offers to engage in sexual conduct with another individual in exchange for some type of fee. The term “sexual conduct” is defined very broadly to include any type of sexual contact, not just having actual intercourse. This would include any touching of sexual or intimate parts on a person for the purpose of gratifying the sexual desire of either party or a third individual.

If you are facing a solicitation or patronizing charge, do not hesitate to contact our Seattle, WA office. One of our experienced criminal defense attorneys will be more than happy to walk you through the process and answer your questions.
