Solicitation and pandering laws in Georgia.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Atlanta, GA

Trying to help out a friend who responded to a posting from a website featuring "escorts" who accept "donations" for time spent with you, although it's pretty obvious the concept behind this. Is this a legitimate reasoning, or would something like this be prosecuted under solicitation laws? A "John" responding to one of these ads and getting caught (as in this case), are they charged with pandering (which is a confusing concept to me), or not since they didn't initiate the contact, only responded to an ad. I'd apprecaite some help pointing him in the right direction. Thanks

    Answered . Lawyers are not going to respond to a hypothetical question that could potentially help you violate the state's prostitution and pandering laws.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . The best way to help your friend is to have that freind confer directly with an attorney so that all of the facts of the situation can be revealed in a way that protects your friend's confidentiality. It is possible for an escort service to provide only escorts, but the bottom line is that if the intent of the site is to provide a sexual service for money, no matter what language is used, then it's prostitution and both the "escorts" and the "johns" can be prosecuted.
