Lewd Conduct/Lewd Conduct With a Minor

Lewd conduct, which may be charged as a felony, has some harsh penalties. Our sex crime defense attorneys make it our objective to minimize these penalties as best as we can or have the charges completely dismissed due to insufficient evidence or illegally obtained evidence.

Indecent exposure, child molestation, child pornography, and prostitution is considered lewd conduct. To be convicted with lewd conduct the burden is on the  prosecution must prove all the elements beyond a reasonable doubt.

The elements of lewd conduct are: the person intentionally took part in the touching of his/her own or someone else’s private areas; the person had the purpose to sexual gratify self or another; the person was in a public place; someone else was present at the time that may have been offended; the person knew or should have known that a person who may have been offended was actually present.

As your sex crime defense attorney, our duty to you as our client is to gather and contest all the evidence the prosecution is trying to bring in to prove each of these elements.

We are aggressive in what we do and our priority is to get you, the client, the best results possible.

Penalties you may face if you are convicted of lewd conduct/lewd conduct with a minor are state imprisonment, fines of up to $10,000, and mandatory sex offender registration as required by California Penal Code Section 290.

Let us help avoid these penalties the best we can. Contact our L.A. sex crime defense attorneys and set up a free face to face consultation.

July 2015 – Van Nuys Court – Successful Case Result

Van Nuys Superior Court – Client charged with Lewd Conduct – a violation of Penal Code Section 647 (b). At the initial court appearance the prosecutors wanted my client to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, be the the Megan’s Law website and wanted him to do a term in jail. After I was able to show them all of the mitigating factors related to the facts and circumstances of the case and give them an idea of the type of person my client is, they offered him a resolution that avoided sex registration, no jail time and he was able to plead to a charge that does not have a sexual aspect to it.
