Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
Dear Customer, what you are describing is referred to as "Pandering" under the Georgia criminal code.
Prostitution consists of performing, or offering or agreeing to perform a sexual act for anything of value. The act itself need not have taken place, nor must the money (or other valuable thing) have actually been delivered. (Ga. Code Ann. § 16-6-9.)
Pandering involves soliciting someone to engage in prostitution on his or her behalf, or on behalf of a third person. (Ga. Code Ann. § 16-6-12.)
Those convicted of pandering will have their convictions, along with their addresses and identifying photographs, published in the county where the offense occurred. If someone convicted of pandering receives probation, he or she must submit to testing for sexually transmitted diseases and consent to the results being released to his or her spouse, if any. (Ga. Code Ann. §§ 16-6-13, 16-6-13.1.)
Without knowing the details of your case, I couldn't tell you whether the DA has sufficient evidence to get a conviction.
If you are facing a pandering charge, my best advice to you is to retain local criminal defense counsel early, do not speak to law enforcement (or anyone else) about the charges, without your lawyer present.
If you cannot afford a lawyer, ask to speak with a public defender.
Hopefully the information in the link above will provide you with sufficient information to avoid a criminal violation.
