Understanding Solicitation Of Sex Worker Charges

Solicitation of sex workers and prostitution charges do not fall under the “sex crimes” categories in Arizona, as those carry felony charges with stiff penalties. However, solicitation of a sex worker is still a crime under both state and Phoenix city ordinances. Specifically, these charges are covered under Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 13, Chapter 32, and the City of Phoenix Municipal Code Section 23-52.

A person convicted of soliciting a sex worker in Phoenix will face class 1 misdemeanor charges. Penalties for a first-time offender could result in a mandatory minimum of 15 days in jail and up to a maximum of six months in jail. This could also result in a fine of $2,500 and up to three years of probation.

Subsequent offenses can result in more severe penalties:

  • A second offense of solicitation of a sex worker can result in a minimum of 30 days in jail.
  • A third offense of solicitation of a sex worker can result in a minimum of 60 days in jail.
  • If a person is convicted of more than three solicitation of a sex worker charges, the mandatory minimum sentence is six months in jail.

A Phoenix solicitation of sex workers attorney is going to be an invaluable resource if you are charged with solicitation of a prostitute. There are various defenses that can be employed on behalf of a person facing these charges, which can include:
