Georgia Pandering Laws & Penalties

Similar to solicitation, the criminal offense of pandering involves the solicitation of prostitution to another person. Pandering may also be charged when an individual knowingly places individuals at a specified location to be open for solicitation. Pandering does not require an actual exchange of money or the performance of the act of prostitution; it only requires that solicitation take place.

This is an area of criminal law that may be difficult for law enforcement to manage because it can rely heavily on eyewitness testimony. The most concrete pandering charges result from sting operations that essentially open the door for the commission of the crime, but these operations are sometimes fraught with their own challenges in terms of legal evidence collection, rights violations, and more.

Pandering charges are generally misdemeanors and yield jail sentences up to one year as well as fines at a maximum of $1,000. If the target of solicitation is under the age of 17, however, then the charge may be upgraded to a felony which could result in prison sentences of up to 5 years with fines between $1,000 and $5,000.

Pandering by compulsion is a similar charge that occurs when an individual solicits another for prostitution by means of force. This type of conviction may yield prison terms up to 10 years. Due to the severity of these penalties, it is critical to discuss your case with a Douglas County criminal defense attorney who can help.
