Federal and North Carolina Solicitation Law
A solicitation can be made in person, in writing (on paper or electronically), or by phone. The solicitation could be for a charity, or for a profit. Thus, in North Carolina law or federal (U.S.) law, solicitation offenses may be instances of:
- violations of the North Carolina's Charitable Solicitation Licensing statute (Chapter 131F)
- telemarketing (solicitation calls)
- solicitation of a child by means of computer communications, to commit an unlawful sex act
- solicitation of prostitution — i.e., offering a sexual act in exchange for money
A solicitation matter may involve criminal or civil legal issues, or both. There need not be a receipt of money or property by the person who did the soliciting; the charge of solicitation is based on the request or effort alone.
