Solicitation Charges

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.

Your reputation and future success hinge on the outcome of your case, and we will work tirelessly as a team with the goal of dismissing your charges.
