Understanding Solicitation in Tampa

Solicitation is a serious offense that can arise from involvement in a criminal enterprise, even if the crime itself wasn’t committed. For instance, if you attempt to hire someone to commit a crime, you could face solicitation charges even if the crime isn’t carried out.

Furthermore, solicitation charges are common in prostitution-related offenses. Under Florida Statute §796, soliciting or enticing another to commit prostitution or lewd acts can lead to a first-degree misdemeanor for a first offense, a third-degree felony for a second offense, and a second-degree felony for a third or subsequent offense.

Beating a Solicitation Charge

As your attorney, I’ll work closely with you to understand the specifics of your case, the evidence against you, and the type of solicitation you’re accused of. This information is crucial to develop a defense strategy tailored to your situation.

One potential defense in a solicitation case is entrapment, which occurs when law enforcement induces or encourages you to commit a crime you otherwise wouldn’t have. Proving entrapment is complex, but as a veteran, I’m trained to face complex situations head-on. I’ll examine all the facts, including conversations between you and the informant, any use of force or threats, and your past criminal behavior.
