Defending Against Lewd Conduct and Indecent Exposure

Utah Lewd Conduct Attorney

Lewd conduct is illegal in Utah.

Lewd conduct typically involves the showing of one’s private areas to another without that person’s consent.

Lewd conduct, also known as indecent exposure, is very often the subject of many jokes on TV shows and movies, and usually involves the common streaker or flasher, but a charge of lewd conduct is not a laughing manner.  If convicted of an act of lewdness you can spend up to six months in jail for a first offense.  If you are a registered sex offender you will be charged with a felony and spend years in jail.

Public urination, which is exactly what it sounds like, is another offense for which you should seek out the Utah criminal defense services provided by Utah Defenders.  Even for public urination you can be sentenced to up to 90 days in jail.  Sometimes you just have “to go” and you want to make sure you are protected from the stringent penalties for something as innocent as public urination.
