Solicitation as a law exists to punish those who attempt to instigate criminal activity by seeking the assistance of others in criminal acts. If you are being charged with solicitation, it is important to work with a qualified defense attorney in order to make sure your case is presented in the best possible fashion. Solicitation laws are often subject to interpretation, so having experience on your side is a good idea.
For the purposes of being charged with solicitation, it does not matter whether the proposed criminal act ever took place. Simply the act of using oral, written, or electronic communication to command, request or hire another to commit a criminal offense is enough to be charged and potentially convicted. The degree of the charge depends on what acts were allegedly being solicited, and to what extent the solicitation was taken.
