Understanding the Offense

The Statute: IC 35-45-4-3 According to IC 35-45-4-3, making an unlawful proposition involves a person knowingly or intentionally paying, offering, or agreeing to pay money or other property to another person for engaging in sexual intercourse or other sexual conduct. This extends to fondling the genitals of the person or any other person. This offense is classified as a Class A misdemeanor.

However, the severity of the charge escalates to a Level 6 felony if the accused has two prior convictions under this section. This underlines the importance of seeking legal counsel promptly to build a robust defense strategy.
