Solicitation of a minor takes place when an individual asks a minor to engage in sexual activity with them. This crime can take place in person or over the internet, and in recent years, many people have been found guilty of the latter. Because a minor is involved, this crime is viewed as extremely detrimental by the court.
A person charged with this crime could face any of the following penalties:
The court will first consider all the circumstances surrounding the offense before determining a sentence. Subsequent offenses usually call for an increased sentence, particularly a longer incarceration period. Registering as a sex offender has the potential to negatively impact one's freedom, as every time the defendant moves, they must check in with state officials.
