PC 266i(a)

Pandering Law & Defense

Information on the crime of pandering is found at California penal code section 266i(a).

PC 266i(a) Law (Abbr.)

PC 266i(a) Except as provided in subdivision (b), any person who does any of the following is guilty of pandering, a felony, and shall be punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for three, four, or six years:

(1) Procures another person for the purpose of prostitution.

(2) By promises, threats, violence, or by any device or scheme, causes, induces, persuades, or encourages another person to become a prostitute.

(3) Procures for another person a place as an inmate in a house of prostitution or as an inmate of any place in which prostitution is encouraged or allowed within this state.

(4) By promises, threats, violence, or by any device or scheme, causes, induces, persuades, or encourages an inmate of a house of prostitution, or any other place in which prostitution is encouraged or allowed, to remain therein as an inmate.

(5) By fraud or artifice, or by duress of person or goods, or by abuse of any position of confidence or authority, procures another person for the purpose of prostitution, or to enter any place in which prostitution is encouraged or allowed within this state, or to come into this state or leave this state for the purpose of prostitution.

(6) Receives or gives, or agrees to receive or give, any money or thing of value for procuring, or attempting to procure, another person for the purpose of prostitution, or to come into this state or leave this state for the purpose of prostitution.

PC 266i(b) Any person who does any of the acts described in subdivision (a) with another person who is a minor is guilty of pandering, a felony, and shall be punishable as follows:

PC 266i(b)(1) If the other person is a minor 16 years of age or older, the offense is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for three, four, or six years.

PC 266i(b)(2) If the other person is under 16 years of age, the offense is punishable by imprisonment in the state prison for three, six, or eight years.

PC 266i(a) Sentence & Punishment

Probation Sentence: A probation sentence is period of supervision instead of an actual jail or prison sentence. Probation sentences are not available in PC 266i(a) cases.

Sex Offender Registration: If found guilty of pandering (PC 266i(a), the defendant will not normally be ordered to register as a sex offender.

Caution: The judge may order the defendant to register as a sex offender in any pandering case. This is an unusual order in a PC 266i(a) case but the law does exist to give the judge the power to make such an order if the judge finds that the defendant was motivated by abnormal sexual arousal when committing the crime (See PC 290.006).
