Don’t just plea guilty if you are charged with solicitation of prostitution in Florida or you will get smacked with a $5,000 fine!
Florida recently changed the penalty for solicitation of prostitution to include a huge fine. The good news? Your attorney may be able to get the state to amend the charge against you to help you avoid that fine!
Last week, our firm achieved just that result for a client. Our firm negotiated with the prosecutor and after negotiations the State agreed to amend the charge against our client to subsection 2(b) instead of 2(f) because 2(b) does not include the mandatory $5,000 fine. The plea negotiation also included a “withhold of adjudication” which means that our client is also eligible to have his record sealed.
If you have been charged with solicitation of prostitution in Florida, or if you have already been slapped with this HUGE fine, call Taracks & Associates today for a free consultation. We may be able to help you withdraw your previously entered plea and negotiate a new plea deal that includes an amendment, helping you avoid this monster fine.
