Houston Lewd Acts Attorney

Lewd acts are a group of crimes that encompass a broad variety of offenses. What they share in common is an intention to arouse the sexual interest of the offender or the person towards whom the act is directed. While most lewd acts are classified as misdemeanors, multiple offenses may require registration as a sex offender. This can have a damaging impact on an individual’s personal, professional, and financial well-being.

If you or someone you know has been charged with committing a lewd act, do not hesitate to obtain legal representation. Merely being accused of this crime may have lifelong consequences. Contact the Houston lewd acts defense lawyers at Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., at 713-523-0404 today to begin formulating your defense against this damaging charge.

Types of Lewd Acts

Many sexual crimes that cannot be easily categorized will be prosecuted as a lewd act. Some of the most common crimes which may be considered a lewd act include:

  • Looking into another person’s home/residence
  • Looking into restroom stalls, dressing rooms, etc.
  • Engaging in sexual acts in a public place
  • Making obscene gestures of a sexual nature

Furthermore, crimes such as solicitation of a prostitute and indecent exposure may also be treated as lewd acts. These crimes will typically be prosecuted as a misdemeanor if they only involve adults. However, if a child is involved, the charge will likely be upgraded to a felony, with more severe penalties and guaranteed registration as a sex offender.
