Solicitation & Disorderly Conduct

Solicitation and Disorderly Conduct Defense Attorney in Los Angeles, California

California law prohibits a range of sexually-related crimes. These crimes include:

  • Solicitation for prostitution
  • Prostitution
  • Indecent Exposure
  • Lewd or lascivious conduct
  • Disorderly conduct

Solicitation

Under California law, a person can be found guilty of solicitation if they agree to engage in an act of prostitution and then take an action in furtherance of the sex act. Solicitation does not require that the defendant actually commit a sexual act, but simply that with the intent to perform a sexual act, defendant requests a sexual act from another person. A conviction for solicitation may require that you register as a sex offender for life and may face jail or prison time.

Indecent Exposure

Indecent exposure is the public display of one’s genitalia to one or more people. Often this is done to give the person who exposes himself, or herself, sexual satisfaction, but such intent is not required for conviction of the crime. If you are convicted of indecent exposure, you will be required to register as a sex offender for life and may face jail or prison time.

Lewd or Disorderly Conduct

The following are examples of lewd or disorderly conduct that is punishable in California:

  • Solicitation
  • Prostitution
  • Peeping Tom
  • Flashing (indecent exposure)
  • Public Masturbation or Frottage
  • Exhibitionism

Entrapment

Entrapment may be a legal defense to a sex crime. It often occurs when an undercover law enforcement agent induces a person to commit an offense, which the person would otherwise have been unlikely to commit. The defendant essentially argues that he or she would not have committed the crime had the undercover agent not induced him or her to do so

David got it right

This is the attorney who I should’ve went with –To put it short out of all the attorneys I consulted with David was the only one who gave me the cut and dry straight forward answer in how to best handle my case unfortunately I went along with the majority ideas and I really should’ve hired David because if I had I wouldn’t have done any jail time or plea bargaining which led to lots of money, classes, community labor, probation for years after. David got it right with the information I gave when I told my side of the story.  – posted by Anonymous, March 31, 2021

The one and only attorney I will be calling is Mr. Baum!

I was involved in an extremely high profile federal criminal court case in Downtown Los Angeles because a former boss of mine was under investigation by the FBI and ultimately charged /convicted/locked up for many years. Mr. Baum is a truly brilliant attorney who not only has the intellect and experience it takes to maneuver through an extremely complicated and multilayered case like mine, but he does so with a Zen like calm that keeps everyone guessing. While representing me, Mr. Baum had no choice but to juggle many hats and I cannot thank him or sing his praises enough! He found secret exits out of the courtroom (to avoid the daily awaiting photographers and reporters after one had chased us out the building and through the parking lot trying to take my photo and get a statement) to making sure that my safety was maintained throughout the entire experience (prep, trial and even afterwards). I pray that I never have to go through another trial, but if I do, you can guarantee that the one and only attorney I will be calling is Mr. Baum!
