Today, prostitution or solicitation of prostitution is still considered a sex crime.
What Is Solicitation of Prostitution?
Solicitation of prostitution is a crime when an individual, a man or a woman, advertises his or her availability to perform sexual acts for compensation. This is also true when a potential patron offers to pay for sex.
The State of Nevada is the only state which allows for some type of legalized prostitution but it still under State control. Prostitution in Nevada can only be done in licensed brothels.
Who Can Be Convicted?
Any person can be charged for the solicitation of prostitution. Whether you are the person who intends to pay someone else to provide sex, or the person intends to receive compensation for sexual acts, you are both equally guilty of the crime of solicitation of prostitution.
Defining The Crime
The crime of solicitation occurs “whenever a person uses words, actions, or any type of conduct in an attempt to engage in an act of prostitution.”
The mere act of openly seeking to engage in prostitution and advertising the act of prostitution is enough in order to be convicted of solicitation of prostitution.
Knowing The Penalties
For first-time offenders there are shorter jail sentences of 30 days to six months for misdemeanor charges. Felony charges face jail sentences of up to five years and a fine of up to $1,000. A probation period of up to 12 months is also possible.
