Defense for Prostitution and Solicitation Charges in San Diego County
Prostitution is the criminal offense of offering, paying or accepting money in exchange for sexual activity. Prostitution is the exchange of money or sexual acts, and solicitation of prostitution is offering or asking another person for sexual acts in exchange for money. Pandering is another offense related to prostitution which involves recruiting prostitutes and soliciting customers for prostitutes. Prostitution and solicitation are typically misdemeanor offenses, but pandering (often referred to as “pimping”) is a felony offense in California.

Intent and Entrapment – California Prostitution Charges
Cases involving prostitution can be particularly complex. A defendant may have entered a massage parlor or responded to an advertisement without knowing that it involved prostitution, and may now be in a situation where he or she is facing criminal charges. Law enforcement may have also planted an undercover officer to act as a prostitute in an attempt to get customers, and this can bring about questions of entrapment – of whether the defendant was coerced or persuaded into soliciting the undercover officer, when the defendant had no prior tendency for such behavior.
