Prostitution in San Diego: PC 647(b)

At Kern Law, APC we aggressively defend clients charged with PC 647(b) and put forth the strongest defense. We challenge illegally obtained evidence obtained in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution, and statements that were made either involuntarily or through coercion, under the Fifth Amendment, and conduct our own investigation to provide the strongest possible defense.

To prove that the defendant is guilty of Solicitation, the prosecutor must

prove that:

1. The defendant requested that another person engage in an act of prostitution; and

2. The defendant intended to engage in an act of prostitution with the other person; and

3. The other person received the communication containing the request.

A person engages in an act of prostitution (PC 647b) if he or she has sexual intercourse or does a lewd act with someone else in exchange for money or other compensation. Under the law, when a prostitute and a customer engage in sexual intercourse or lewd acts, both are engaged in an act of prostitution.

An allegation of Solicitation or Prostitution may carry significant legal, social, family, and consequences to one’s reputation and career. If convicted of Solicitation/Prostitution in San Diego (California), he or she can be sentenced to up to six months in county jail; be placed on probation; have significant fines and classes, and have a criminal record with strong ramifications.
