    Even within the soliciting part of said statute, the definition of “solicit” isn’t specifically defined. Or is it? http://www.yourhoustonnews.com/east_montgomery/news/charges-dismissed-against-ex-spd-cop/article_b8b0fa71-442e-5277-ae81-b3177cd88cf0.html

    The Penal Code — and perhaps even moreso the many other codes that contain miscellaneous criminal offenses — have become rich fodder for any comedy routine over the last 20 years. Once a model of succinct clarity, the code is now littered with ridiculous and unnecessary offenses like Evading 2nd offender, metal theft, unlawful shrimpi harvesting, and a host of others too numerous to name. I know you only wanted to address overbroad statutes, but I couldn’t help but rant just a bit about all the silly and superfluous ones we now have thanks to the legislature.
