Definition of Solicitation:

Rhode Island Code Chapter 11-37 acknowledges Indecent Solicitation of a Child as when someone willfully seeks someone under the age of 18 to participate in prostitution.

This crime falls under sexual assault cases, and the chapter further elaborates the following:

  • The offender was able to solicit a minor under 18, either by permitting, prompting, provoking, simply asking, or recommending that the child take part in prostitution. Furthermore, this act of indecent solicitation can take place through an advertisement, online, via a phone, verbally, in writing, or through some other means.
  • Aggravating factors of the crime depend on the age of the child, or whether the child was lured  into a building, a vehicle or some other space. These actions can branch out into other offenses such as child snatching or child molestation.

The Rhode Island Law Offices of John R. Grasso will examine the conversations, the evidence, and other important factors – in order to dismiss fines, lower charges, or pursue alternative sentencing.
