The solicitation of prostitution is a violation of California Penal Code section 647(b) PC. An accused is believed to have committed the offense once an agreement is made to exchange a sexual act for money or something else of value.
These cases can be very embarrassing for a defendant and could impact not only the defendant, but also the defendant's relationships with friends and family members. The upside is that violation is a misdemeanor, which means that in most cases, your attorney can appear for you for most of the court hearings.
