Prostitution and solicitation related criminal charges can be one of the most embarrassing events a person encounters. Solicitation charges generally involve an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute. This event is defined as an inchoate crime. This means a person asks for sex in exchange for some sort of monetary consideration. The ultimate sexual act does not need to occur.
These events can be charged in multiple jurisdictions. In El Paso County the case can be charged in Colorado Springs Municipal Court, with a conviction penalty of no more than 90 days jail. If the case is charged in El Paso County Court, the penalty is more extreme and could result in a jail sentence of no greater than one year.
