Public Lewdness: You Have More Than Your Reputation To Worry About

January 17, 2014

Public lewdness is a step up from indecent exposure in that it involves lewd, immoral, or indecent behavior of a sexual nature in public. In order to be considered a “public place” the act must be conducted in an area that is open or visible to the general public. As such, an act that take place inside a home or automobile may be charged as public lewdness if it is done in a manner that makes it easily observed by other people.
