If you have been arrested for lewdness, you might be understandably worried about the consequences. Not only are you facing significant jail time; you could even be required to register as a sex offender if you are convicted. Beyond that, having a sex crime conviction appear on your permanent record will make it extremely difficult for you to secure employment or housing in the future.

Do not let a single mistake ruin your life.

The criminal defense attorneys at the Tormey Law Firm are confident and aggressive litigators. We will do whatever it takes to win your case and protect your future. Our lawyers have years of experience in the courtroom. We’ve successfully defended clients facing charges for aggravated sexual assault, solicitation, and lewdness. Travis J. Tormey, the firm’s founding partner, previously worked for two of the largest law firms in New Jersey. He also worked with the sex crimes unit at the United States Attorney’s Office. Moreover, Alissa D. Hascup, one of our litigators, is a former county and municipal prosecutor who understands exactly how prosecutors strategize.

N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4: Lewdness Charges in New Jersey

A person can be charged with lewdness when they are accused of committing a flagrantly lewd and offensive act in a public place. This typically refers to the intentional exposure of a person’s private parts in public. In some circumstances, you can even be charged with lewdness for exposing yourself in a private place which is visible by members of the public. The prosecution must prove that the lewd act was likely to be observed by a non-consenting individual and that the other person would be expected to be affronted or alarmed by the conduct.

A more serious form of lewdness occurs when an adult exposes his private parts in the presence of a child who is under the age of 13. In these cases, the charges can be enhanced to a felony-level offense.

Avoid the Most Serious Penalties for a Lewdness Conviction in New Jersey

Most lewdness charges are classified as disorderly persons offenses. A conviction for disorderly persons offense lewdness can result in a sentence of up to 6 months in the county jail. The more serious form of lewdness – typically involving indecent exposure in front of a minor – is classified as a fourth degree felony. A conviction for fourth degree lewdness is punishable by a sentence of up to 18 months in New Jersey State Prison.

The penalties for a lewdness conviction are clearly severe. If you are facing charges for lewdness in New Jersey, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can raise advanced defense strategies. It might be possible for an attorney to argue that there were mitigating circumstances in your case. For example, the prosecution needs to prove that the indecent exposure was intentional. If you had no reason to believe that you would be visible by others, then your attorney may be able to argue that you had no intent to commit public lewdness.
