Charged With Solicitation?

Proven Miami Sex Crime Lawyer

Soliciting any individual for sex or sexual activity in exchange for payment is a very serious crime. Until the advent of the internet, solicitation often involved strictly prostitution. However, online chat rooms have become the latest avenue for solicitation, specifically of minors, and have highly increased the number of solicitation crimes that are considered a federal matter.

It is important to note that these crimes can be charged even if sexual activity has not occurred. The mere intent, either recorded in statements or actions, is considered illegal, but also leaves a lot of room for misunderstanding.

When is solicitation a federal crime?

According to federal statutes, solicitation can be any act to intentionally induce, persuade, coerce, or entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. These laws cover a number of possible avenues, making it easy for simply misunderstandings to turn into serious offenses.

Federal solicitation statutes make the following illegal:

  • Using mail, interstate or foreign commerce, or the internet to solicit
  • Transporting a minor across state or international boarders for sex
  • Traveling across state or international boarders to engage in sex with a minor

Penalties for these crimes vary and can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances of the crime.
