Lewd and Lascivious Conduct refers to unlawful conduct of an individual which is intended at arousing the libido or primarily sexual sensation of themselves or another person, open solicitation for prostitution, or indecent exposure of genitalia in any public place or any place where the other person is likely to be offended or annoyed. Lewd or Lascivious Conduct can include people who are living together who are known not to be married or entertainment. When children are involved lewd and lascivious conduct charges can carry severe penalties. If actual contact is made with the victim, this may be charged as sexual assault.
Criminal lawyers know Lewd and Lascivious Conduct, even at the misdemeanor level, can lead to more serious charges and many times results in lifetime registration as a sex offender. The stigma of being a sex offender follows you for the rest of your life and can affect where you live, what jobs you can find and your personal reputation.
Sex crimes are some of the most serious offenses. Lewd and Lascivious Conduct is usually charged as a felony in most areas, and thus it is important to aggressively defend yourself by hiring the best criminal attorneys.
Lewd is defined as indecent, obscene, and preoccupied with sex and crude sexual desire. Lascivious means given to or expressing lust or exciting sexual desire.
State sexual criminal laws vary on lewdness, indecent exposure, child molestation, child sex abuse laws, rape and sexual assault in the way they name it, define it and penalties. In some states, if the victim is a child, the offense is classified as lewd or lascivious molestation, child molestation, sexual abuse, or sexual assault.
Lewd and lascivious often carries additional charges especially if there was physical contact or inappropriate touching involved.
Lewdness, lewd and lascivious conduct, open and gross lewdness or indecent exposure are similar sex crimes that involve sexual activity or exposure with the knowledge that they are in the presence of others. Even if the sexual activity is not intentionally on display for others, for instance having sex in a car, it can still result in a criminal charge.
Indecent Exposure normally refers to the purposeful display of one's genitals in a public place or a place of public access. Because the perpetrator is thought to commit the act for sexual gratification, this offense usually carries a sex offender registration requirement if found guilty.
Lewd and lascivious conduct penalites vary greatly by each case, but when a child or minor is involved the punishments are much more severe. Even a first time offender may be required to do mandatory counseling, jail time and register as a sex offender. Because these cases generate a considerable amount of social disapproval, they are often highly publicized. Repeat offenders will do much more jail time and experience severe penalites. Here is a list of possible penalties.
There are a number of specific defenses that our criminal lawyers use to successfully deal with lewd and lascivious conduct or indecent exposure.
It is critical that you discuss your matter with an attorney with specific experience with lewd and lascivious and similar cases and do so as soon as possible. LibertyBell Law Group criminal attorneys have extensive experience with lewd and lascivious conduct and sex crime cases, and have a very impressive history of wins. It is generally easier for criminal lawyers to obtain exonerating evidence such as a witness testimony before too much time has passed since the charges were filed.
A conviction on lewd and lascivious conduct establishes a severely damaging record and may require you to register as a sex offender for a lifetime and serve time in jail. These charges, even if they seem minor, should be taken seriously.
Most importantly, do not try to explain yourself or your actions to investigators or police offers. They are not on your side. We are.
