Solicitation/Patronizing

SolicitationOne of the most stressful and embarrassing crimes you can be charged with is patronizing or soliciting a prostitute. Certain jurisdictions conduct stings to catch potential “johns.”

A solicitation/patronizing charge is a misdemeanor, which means the maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. However, there are normally additional administrative fees and court costs imposed, especially with this type of criminal charge. The courts normally also impose probation and a stay out of area order and ask for a DNA test.

Solicitation is described as when a person engages or agrees or offers to engage in sexual conduct with another person in return for a fee. Sexual conduct is defined very broadly to include any type of sexual contact, not simply just having actual sex. Sexual contact means any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a person done for the purpose of gratifying sexual desire of either party or a third party.

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. Christina P.

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 couldn't be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney. Robert
