New Hampshire & Maine Sex Crimes Lawyer
It is illegal in the state of New Hampshire to solicit another person for
the purpose of engaging in a crime. In relation to
sex offenses, solicitation generally applies to the crime of prostitution.
New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated §645:2 defines solicitation as a misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one
year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Along with these penalties, an
offender may also face lifetime sex offender registration that limits
where they can live and work.
Penalties for Soliciting Prostitution
Solicitation is the act of requesting or inquiring whether or not another
individual is willing to engage in a crime. Therefore, simply asking if
another person is willing to engage in prostitution - whether they pay
or receive payment for the act - is a misdemeanor. The firm of Shaheen
