What is Public Lewdness? Why Are Both I And My Significant Other Charged?
Public lewdness involves engaging in a public sex act, but is different from indecent exposure in that it does not require that there be someone present to be offended by it. In most cases of public lewdness, someone witnessed the act. It’s not a requirement under the law that someone be offended by it or that the parties involved were reckless with regard to whether or not someone was going to be offended by it. If two people were engaged in a public sex act, then both parties would be charged with public lewdness. In these cases, each defendant must be represented by their own attorney in order to avoid conflict of interest issues. If the prosecutors are not willing to dismiss the case, it is important that each defendant obtain the services of an experienced attorney.
