Warren County NJ Lewdness Lawyers

Sex Crimes Defense Attorneys in Hackettstown, New Jersey

As a general principle, the New Jersey Criminal Code makes clear: you have to keep it in your pants, especially in the presence of children or anyone with a mental disability. In other words, revealing one’s genitals for the purpose of gratifying a sexual desire is considered to be an act of lewdness and will expose the actor to penalties under criminal law. In fact, depending upon the circumstances, lewdness is considered either a disorderly persons offense or a fourth degree crime in New Jersey. Regardless of the degree of lewdness charge, the criminal defense lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm in Sussex County and Warren County are ready to apply their experience to your case by analyzing the prosecution’s evidence and developing an effective defense strategy.

Contact our offices today at 973-755-1695 to discuss your case and learn more about how we can help you overcome these charges and move on with your life.

Lewdness Defense Lawyers in Phillipsburg NJ

Under N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4(a), a person commits a disorderly persons offense of lewdness if he does any flagrantly lewd and offensive act which he knows or reasonably expects is likely to be observed by other non-consenting persons who would be affronted or alarmed. But if a lewd act takes place in the presence of children or a mentally disabled person, the criminal code sets forth that such an action is a fourth degree crime.

That is, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4(b), a person commits a crime of the fourth degree if: 1) he exposes his intimate parts for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the actor or of any other person under circumstances where the actor knows or reasonably expects he is likely to be observed by a child who is less than thirteen years of age where the actor is at least four years older than the child; or 2) he exposes his intimate parts for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the actor or of any other person under circumstances where the actor knows or reasonably expects he is likely to be observed by a person who because of mental disease or defect is unable to understand the sexual nature of the actor’s conduct.

What Happens if You are Convicted of Lewdness in New Jersey?

If a person is convicted of lewdness as a fourth degree crime, the punishment will be up to eighteen months in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. When it comes to a disorderly persons offense of lewdness, the penalty will be up to six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine.
