SOLICITATION PENALTIES IN FL
Solicitation is described Florida Statutes Annotated § 796.07. Like many other criminal offenses, the severity of the crime depends on a number of different circumstances. A first-time solicitation of an adult charge is considered a second-degree misdemeanor.
A second-degree misdemeanor in Florida can result in:
- Up to $500 in fines
- Up to 60 days in jail
These penalties can increase with subsequent convictions. If the solicitation involves a minor, this charge can easily become a felony, which can result in significant prison time.
If you or a loved one have been charged with this crime, it is critical that you start exploring your defense options. Many of these cases involve entrapment by law enforcement or rely on digital evidence, and a favorable outcome requires knowledgeable and assertive counsel ready to properly illustrate the facts of the case.
