Lewd Conduct

Lewd conduct is a serious criminal offense. If you’ve been accused of lewd conduct in Los Angeles, you are probably scared, confused, embarrassed, and perhaps angry. What is lewd conduct? The law defines “lewd” as conduct that could be construed as offensive or indecent. Lewd conduct accusations usually involve public conduct such as indecent exposure, prostitution, or selling pornography. Though lewd conduct accusations can often be less serious than those for other sex crimes, the consequences can vary depending on the conviction and could affect your freedom and your reputation.

Though lewd conduct may be considered less offensive than other serious sex crimes such as rape or child molestation, the unfortunate reality is that they are often prosecuted with the same vigor as other such serious offenses. Jail time, serious penalties, and loss of professional licenses are only the start of the consequences you could face if convicted of lewd conduct. You could be forced to register as a sex offender, even if you only committed a momentary act of indecent exposure. In addition, the number of sting operations and undercover police seeking out victimless acts of “lewd conduct” is on the rise.

Fortunately, people accused of lewd conduct need not throw up their hands and give up the fight before it begins. Though it can be intimidating to deal with a prosecutor on a mission and a potential conviction that could sully your good name and destroy your career, you have a powerful ally in the right California sex crime defense attorney. An attorney who is familiar with the ins and outs of lewd conduct accusations can create a winning defense, expose unethical tactics, protect your good name, and keep you out of jail with an alternative sentence or a case dismissal.
