Public Lewdness and the Associated Consequences

July 15, 2015

In Texas, a person who engages in public activities that may be deemed inappropriate or obscene could be charged with public lewdness. In general, this charge is applied in cases that involved one or more people engaging in sexual conduct in a public place. Even though it may not sound like it, this is usually a serious misdemeanor criminal offense and it can lead to arrests, steep fines and a criminal record.
