Not everyone realizes that a public display of affection can lead to criminal charges if it goes too far.

UNDERSTANDING HOW ENTRAPMENT AFFECTS LEWD CONDUCT CASES IN CALIFORNIA

Because it is also unlawful to solicit “lewd conduct,” many lewd conduct charges are the result of sting operations. A law enforcement officer may pose as a civilian and loiter around areas where lewd conduct frequently occurs. If someone does happen to voluntarily solicit them for lewd conduct, they can face criminal charges, but in practice, undercover law enforcement will sometimes pressure or encourage solicitation. In these instances, a person consequently charged with lewd conduct may be a victim of entrapment, which occurs when someone is compelled to commit a crime they otherwise would not have committed. If you believe you may have been entrapped by law enforcement, The Law Office of Jacqueline Goodman may be able to get the charges dismissed.

You do not need to face the criminal justice system alone. Schedule a free initial consultation with a seasoned legal professional by calling (714) 266-3945 or filling out an online contact form.

WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR A LEWD CONDUCT CONVICTION IN CALIFORNIA?

Lewd conduct is a misdemeanor offense. A conviction can lead to up to 6 months of jail time and up to $1,000 in fines. Fortunately, individuals convicted of lewd conduct are not typically required to register as a sex offender for any amount of time. While this makes the consequences of a lewd conduct conviction less severe than those of other sex crimes, having any kind of criminal record can make it more difficult to obtain housing and employment opportunities. An Orange County lewd conduct lawyer can fight to protect your rights and help you avoid these consequences.

Do not plead guilty or accept a plea bargain without first consulting a legal professional. Fill out an online contact form or call (714) 266-3945 to schedule your complimentary consultation.
