LEWDNESS – INDECENT EXPOSURE
Morris County Lewdness Charge Attorney
Few criminal charges can cause as much embarrassment as a lewd conduct charge. While the term lewd conduct carries sexual connotations, in many cases, these charges do not involve conduct of a sexual nature. While your first instinct may be to plead guilty to these charges and move on with your life, a criminal defense lawyer may be able to help you reach a more positive outcome.
At Maynard Law Office, LLC, our defense lawyers are here for people during the most difficult times of their lives. Our lawyers and staff are not going to judge you based on what you may or may not have done. Rather, we will focus on the facts of your case and explore all possible alternatives.
A Serious Charge Under Any Circumstance
Lewdness can be charged as a disorderly persons offense or a fourth-degree crime, depending on the circumstances. Generally speaking, individuals who commit “flagrantly lewd and offensive acts” likely to be observed by other people without their consent can be charged with disorderly persons offense. When the charge involves committing a lewd or offensive act observed by a child under the age of 13 or by a person with mental disabilities, lewd conduct can be a fourth-degree crime.
Our law firm will review the facts of your case in order to determine all possible defenses. If there is reason to believe that the state will not be able to prove part of its case, we will seek a dismissal of the charges. If the evidence appears to be strong, we will look for alternative sentencing and seek all ways to mitigate the damage of this offense.
