Defenses to Sexual Solicitation
The defenses to a charge for sexual solicitation will of course vary depending on the specific facts of a case, but one defense that commonly arises in such cases is entrapment. Perhaps a police officer under cover offered you sexual services to which you agreed but would not have done so but for the police officer’s actions. If so, your case may be subject to dismissal or acquittal based on an entrapment defense. Entrapment is an affirmative defense but whether such a defense will apply to you will depend on the very specific facts of your case.
If the entrapment defense applies to you we will let you know. Contact a sexual solicitation defense lawyer for a free consultation to find out more about how we can defend you.
