Maryland is very strict on solicitation (under the receiving earnings of a prostitute and/or pandering) and even a first time offense would be subject to § 5-106(b) of the Courts Article. What this is is a Max. penalty of 10 years in prison and 10,000 dollar fine. Now please don't be alarmed. This is the maximum, not standard or mandatory. If you are a first time offender, the courts may be somewhat linient on you, but I would recommend having a lawyer at all costs. This is a serious offense and without an attorney, the chances of getting a higher sentence is very real. I wish you luck. i have pasted a website below that includes the solicitation laws of Maryland, I hope this is helpful.---CJShanna3
