Solicitation for Prostitution is charged as a misdemeanor, while Pimping or Pandering is charged as a felony.

Prostitution

Prostitution is the actual act of exchanging money for sexual activity. It is defined under California Penal Code § 653.20(a).

Pimping or Pandering

It is not uncommon for undercover/vice officers to go through great lengths to seek out and arrest persons engaged in these types of activities. Thoroughly investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged conduct can often lead to a favorable outcome. A law firm familiar with these types of crimes can provide the type of skilled representation one charged with these types of crimes needs. The Law Office of Barry T. Simons is such a firm.
