Criminal Solicitation Questions

What is Criminal Solicitation?

Criminal solicitation is the act of soliciting, or the act of trying to persuade another person to commit a crime. Regardless of whether the crime is actually committed by the person that was being persuaded, the perpetrator could be convicted of criminal solicitation on the means of the intent. Depending on the situation, criminal solicitation can hold both misdemeanor and felony charges.

Is it possible to be charged with criminal solicitation without being taken into custody and a citation not given, how long does it take the warrant to be issued?

There are cases where one is charged without being arrested or taken into custody. Criminal cases usually start with an arrest, but they don’t always have to, it is possible to have the charge without the arrest. A summons would most likely be received in the mail or depending on the circumstances there could be a warrant issued. The timing will depend on the statute of limitations however, in many situations 30 days seems to be the norm.

What is the statute of limitations for solicitation of adult pornography in the state of IL?

Adult pornography is completely legal, with that being said there really is no offense of solicitation of adult pornography. Therefore, this would not be an offense.

What are the potential penalties for solicitation of a prostitute in the state of FL, that is someone’s first time offence and can this be expunged off someone’s record?

The solicitation of a prostitute is a violation of Florida Statute 796.07(2)(f) which is a second degree misdemeanor that carries a punishment of up to sixty days in jail. For a first offense one is more likely to receive probation, fines, court costs, and possibly community service and/or classes to attend. There are offenses that are ineligible for sealing or expungement by statute, but soliciting a prostitute is not one of them as long as the prostitute was not under the age of 18.

Could getting a speeding ticket affect someone’s expungement of a solicitation of prostitution?

A regular speeding ticket is not considered a crime unless one was charged with reckless endangerment or a similar offense. An expungement request should not be affected by normal speeding ticket.

If someone sent emails to a minor, was arrested for online solicitation of a minor in Ft Worth Texas, how can the person that was arrested defend their actions?

Depending on the wording of the emails, defending ones actions or intention could be hard. Emails are incriminating and can be used as evidence that there were intentions of solicitation. The prosecuting attorney’s job is to prove there was intent and a crime committed, by using the words written in the email, depending on what the wording was, can be enough proof to the court that there in fact was intent to commit a crime.

Criminal solicitation is a very complex topic; it can have many legal issues. People often turn towards the Experts for insights or solutions. Experts can help with reliable answers.
