The Importance of Retaining Experienced Legal Counsel

Total confidentiality and managing the private matter of an accusation of Lewd Conduct quickly can be critical for those who are in a public job of any type. Our attorneys move quickly to suppress the evidence if it can be exposed that entrapment took place in the case. In order for the charges to be viable, it is necessary that another person present could have been offended by the act, such as in a public place. The individual accused must have also been aware that the other person was likely to be offended by the incident.

Lewd Conduct can be a "catch-all" offense that is filed under certain circumstances in which law enforcement wants to arrest and charge the individual and is searching for a viable option. These accusations are often part of other charges when a party gets out of hand, or even for college students that are involved in some activity that law enforcement finds reprehensible.

In many cases, these charges can be quickly resolved through a negotiation with the prosecuting attorney, or a plea bargain to reduce the charges to something less dangerous to your reputation.
