When Can You Be Charged With a Lewd Act?
Posted By The Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Grass || 9-Jul-2014
A lewd act is a type of sex crime. You may be charged with a lewd act if you are suspected of committing any type of unlawful conduct which results in your own sexual arousal or the arousal of the individual to whom the act was directed. One example of a lewd act is indecent exposure. For example, many people face this particular charge after an evening of drinking at a bar, during which they may attempt to relieve themselves in a public area. Other examples of lewd acts are sexual conduct in a public place, pornography, and indecency with a child.
If convicted of committing a lewd act, you may face jail time, fines, or a mandatory treatment program, and you may be required to register as a sex offender. You will also suffer permanent damage to your reputation, making it more difficult to gain employment.
