Dallas Public Lewdness Defense Lawyer

Public lewdness at one time meant fornicating in public, but the definition now includes stripping in public, showing off your breasts/genitals/buttocks, or attempting to perform a sexual act or to make sexual contact with another where people will see you. It can be done either to titillate people or to offend them. It is a misdemeanor, but it can lead to a year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000.

Fort Worth Indecent Exposure Defense Attorney

Indecent exposure is similar to public lewdness, but it is usually an effort to arouse others by showing your body. The punishment is higher — up to six months in jail and an optional $2,000 fine.

Many times these charges are political, made to harass unpopular sexually oriented businesses that are operating within the law.

Dallas Public Lewdness Defense Lawyer

Many attorneys don’t take public lewdness or indecent exposure cases. Sally G. Goodman does take them and has earned a reputation in Dallas as a defender of people’s first amendment rights. For the same reason, she accepts cases involving prostitution, solicitation, child pornography and computer crimes.

Aggressive defense is necessary when you are charged with these crimes because so much is at stake — not just staying out of jail, but avoiding registration as a sex offender, and damage to your reputation, whether you are convicted or not.

If you have been arrested for public lewdness or indecent exposure, you need a lawyer tough enough to stand up to political harassment, and knowledgeable enough about the complexities of law to minimize the negative impact of your arrest.
