Solicitation of Prostitution – Phoenix Code § 23-52

What is Solicitation of Prostitution? (City of Phoenix City Code § 23-52)

Solicitation of Prostitution occurs when someone offers money or something of value in exchange for another person to engage in a sexual act. There is no corresponding Arizona Revised Statute (ARS) but almost every individual city has their own municipal code outlawing Solicitation of Prostitution. The State of Arizona has said that the act of Prostitution is illegal, thus soliciting a prostitute is illegal too.

Every city in Arizona has the right to enforce their own statutes or city codes when it comes to Solicitation of Prostitution. The State of Arizona has stated that Prostitution itself is illegal and has allowed each city to monitor the area of solicitation themselves. The City of Phoenix has enacted City Code § 23-52 to cover Solicitation of Prostitution.
