You are guilty of solicitation when you ask someone to commit a crime for you, or to help you commit a crime, or when you advise someone on how to commit a crime. The only act required for a crime of solicitation is that of asking or advising the other person to do an illegal act. Although solicitation usually is associated with prostitution, you are guilty of solicitation any time you ask someone to commit any crime for you or advise a person on how it should be done. For example, it is solicitation to ask a person to kill someone or to commit a burglary for you, or to tell him or her how to do it.
