New Jersey Sex Crimes Lawyer

In New Jersey, lewd conduct is defined as the exposing of the genitals for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the actor or of any other person. While charges involving lewd conduct, such as indecent exposure, are generally misdemeanors, they can escalate to the felony level if the accusation involves a minor. Unlike other criminal charges, an arrest for a sex-related charge may not occur until some time after the incident.
