Pandering Offenses

What is Solictation?

In Georgia, Pandering (aka solicitation) is the act of offering or agreeing to pay someone else to engage in sexual activity. It is a crime in Georgia to solicit or agree to pay someone else to engage in sexual activity, whether or not the sexual activity actually takes place. Solicitation is typically classified as a misdemeanor offense in Georgia and is punishable by imprisonment and fines.

However, if the person being solicited is under the age of 18, the offense may be charged as a felony, which carries more severe penalties. Solicitation may also be charged as a felony if the perpetrator is a repeat offender or if the solicitation involves the use of force, coercion, or threats.
