What is a solicitation of prostitution charge in Texas? Criminal Defense Attorney Benson Varghese explains in this short video.

Both prostitution and solicitation of prostitution in Texas is a Class B offense which means it’s punishable by up to 180 days in jail and up to a $2,000 fine. What’s unique about solicitation of prostitution is it is a charge that many people are going to look at and look at you disfavorably, even if they just see an arrest on your record. Our goal when someone is charged with solicitation or prostitution is to not only avoid prison or straight probation but to work out an outcome that will allow for an expunction later on down the road so the criminal record is destroyed in its entirety.
