Proving Solicitation in Silicon Valley, CA

Simply agreeing to have sex with a prostitute for money, or offering money or other services to a woman for sex, may be enough to get convicted of this crime. An act of sex is not a required element to prove this crime. No touching of any kind actually needs to take place. Once the offer is made by an individual with some act in furtherance (such as an exchange of money) the crime has occurred.

What If A Cop Was Posing As A Prostitute?

It is very common for the police to set up "sting" operations where an officer will dress up as a prostitute in an attempt to lure people into committing the crime of solicitation of a prostitute. Police will also post ads on internet websites that cater to escort services. However, not all police operations are legal and the police must follow certain strict protocols.

If you feel as though you were tricked or "entrapped" by the police, we can help. For aggressive representation of your sex crime charge, do not hesitate to contact our firm or call 408-246-3004.
