Solicitation of a Prostitute
Being charged with solicitation of a prostitute is not only embarrassing, these charges can wreck your reputation.
In New Hampshire, solicitation of a prostitute is a misdemeanor charge. But it can destroy you family and put a dent into your professional life.
If you have been accused of soliciting a prostitute, you need to call an experienced defense lawyer who can help you get your life back on track. In New Hampshire, you should call criminal defense attorney Michael Anzalone.
It is illegal in New Hampshire to solicit another person to engage in sexual activity. The punishment for soliciting a prostitute is up to one year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. This all depends on the circumstances of your case.
By law, solicitation is the act of trying to get someone else to participate in a crime with you. If the person is a prostitute, then you can be charged with soliciting a prostitute. This will apply even if the person _ the prostitute _ doesn’t agree to receive payment for the act. It is simply the act of requesting their services that makes up a solicitation crime.
At the Anzalone Law Firm in Nashua, New Hampshire, we will make your case a priority. We know what this kind of mark on your record can mean to you and your family and we will work with you to get the very best possible outcome in your case.

All forms of prostitution fall under New Hampshire’s criminal code and you can read about solicitation charges at RSA 645:2.
We encourage you to read up on the charges and be informed when you your case goes to court. In fact, you should know that under state law, the person who is accused of soliciting a prostitute is just as guilty of a crime as the person who is accused of being a prostitute.
And, again, police do not need to have any evidence that money exchanged hands. All that needs to happen for you to be accused of soliciting a prostitute if for you to seek sexual favors from another person.
Our hope will be to get your life back on track. Your lawyer may recommend pleading guilty to the charge or even a lesser charge in exchange for a reduced sentence.
This could be your best bet. But if your attorney believes the case against you isn’t that strong, he may suggest going to trial before a judge and jury.
We understand that it’s a difficult time for you and your family. Your livelihood may also be at stake.
So we take these charges very seriously.
