Solicitation is to knowingly attempt to recruit, in public, another person to engage in the act of prostitution. The number of prior convictions for a prostitution or solicitation charge will greatly impact the penalties you will face.
Your penalty will be determined after a review of your criminal record for prior convictions of related charges.
