Columbus Solicitation Lawyer

Criminal Cases Involving Solicitation

Various laws in Ohio prohibit an individual from soliciting sex or loitering with the intention of soliciting. Solicitation and loitering to engage in solicitation will usually be charged as a third degree misdemeanor unless the person accused of soliciting is HIV positive. Solicitation cases involving a person that is a carrier of the virus that causes acquired immunodeficiency are charged as a felony. The penalties for solicitation can include:

The court may also order the accused to submit to venereal disease and HIV testing. Law enforcement frequently conducts sting operations around the state to apprehend prostitutes as well as persons soliciting prostitution. Soliciting a person for sex using the Internet is also a crime. Both state and federal agencies monitor the Internet with sophisticated tracking devices looking for sexual predators. Law enforcement personnel will also pose as minors in chat rooms to flush out sex offenders. Importuning, the crime of soliciting a minor, is a felony offense with a mandatory minimum prison sentence if the person has a prior sex crime criminal record.

A Columbus sex crime lawyer should be contacted immediately if you have been charged with solicitation. Many times quick action by a knowledgeable defense attorney can result in a reduction in charges or case dismissal.
