Solicitation for Prostitution
In California, solicitation for prostitution is addressed under Penal Code Section 647(b)(1) and is classified as a misdemeanor. This law applies to anyone involved in the act of solicitation, whether they are the prostitute, the client, or a third party such as a pimp. The statute defines solicitation as an individual who solicits, agrees to engage in, or engages in any act of prostitution with the intent to receive compensation, money, or anything of value from another person.
The penalties for a violation of this section include imprisonment in a county jail for up to six months, a fine not exceeding $1,000, or both. In cases where the solicited individual is a minor, the penalties are more severe, potentially including longer jail terms and higher fines. This law reflects California’s efforts to address and penalize the act of solicitation for prostitution, emphasizing the state’s stance against commercial sexual exploitation.
