People v. Dixon
California Court of Appeal
119 Cal. Rptr. 3d 901, 191 Cal. App. 4th 1154 (2011)
Todd Dixon (defendant) sent a text message to L.N., a 17-year-old girl, offering her $200 to engage in sexual conduct with him. L.N. reported the text message to her parents and the police. Using L.N.’s cell phone, police officers set up a meeting at a motel with Dixon, who accepted, believing he was meeting with L.N. Dixon was arrested after arriving at the motel. Dixon was carrying sexual supplies and over $200 in cash. The State of California (plaintiff) charged Dixon with pandering for encouraging L.N. to engage in prostitution. Dixon was convicted and appealed, arguing that California’s pandering statute only applied to defendants who induced others to engage in prostitution for third parties. California countered, arguing that pandering applied to any exchange of money for sexual services, regardless of whether the recipient of the solicited services was the defendant or a third party.
