Los Angeles Lewd Conduct Defense Attorney
What is Lewd Conduct?
Lewd conduct is generally considered any act of a sexual nature, such as oral sex, masturbation, or the exposure of one's breasts, anus, or genitals, that is committed in a public place.
Two primary types of lewd conduct exist and they are:
- Engaging in lewd conduct
- Soliciting another to engage in lewd conduct
In both of these cases, the lewd conduct offense is considered a misdemeanor, but even then one can still face steep penalties including registration as a sex offender and up to a year of incarceration in jail.
