How a Solicitation Attorney Can Help

If you have been charged with solicitation, an attorney can explain how the law in your state defines solicitation and discuss the possible defenses available to the charge, which include:

  • The activity you asked someone to participate in is not a crime
  • You did not intend to commit a crime
  • You did not know what you proposed was a crime
  • Your proposal was misunderstood
  • No one received, heard, or responded to your request

An attorney also can:

  • Prepare and present your defense
  • Negotiate a plea and a lighter sentence or probation
