Solicitation of prostitution: Texting through cell phone

Asked over 2 years ago - Chicago, IL

I exchanged text messages and a phone call with a prostitute. I asked her the rate and gave her approximate, but not the exact location of where I lived. Assuming the texting records remain on her cell phone, can I get charged for solicitation of prostitution later on when she gets arrested as a result of law enforcement's sting operation and the enforcement discovers our text messages?

    Answered . Two suggestions. First, don't' talk about this on the internet. Second, you need to talk to a Criminal Law attorney near you right away. You can look for one here on Avvo under the Find a Lawyer tab. Or you can call your local attorney's Bar Association and ask for a referral to a Criminal Law attorney near you. If you can not afford an attorney then you should tell them and ask for a public defender (it may be called something else in your particular state).
