Defending Against Charges of Public Lewdness
Prosecutors treat allegations of public lewdness very seriously and will aggressively pursue a conviction against anyone that has been charged with this offense. Though this crime is only classified as a Class A misdemeanor, people who are convicted of this offense may still have to be listed on the sex offender registration for a defined period of time. While the crime is a serious one, it is not as serious as a felony sex crime.
Possible Consequences of a Public Lewdness Conviction
Depending on the particulars of the charges that have been filed against you, the prosecution may ask that a number of life-changing penalties be handed down against you, including each of the following:
- Up to a year in jail
- Up to a $4,000 fine
- Registration as a sex offender
Although these charges may seem pretty frightening for you right now, you should remember that it is critical to retain legal representation as early on in the legal process as you are able. Once you have retained an attorney, your attorney will be able to speak on your behalf during any and every interaction you have with investigators.
