Tennessee Sex Crimes Defense Attorney and Lewd Conduct Defense Lawyer Located in Knoxville, TN
The laws regarding lewd conduct differ from state to state. In Tennessee, when an individual engages in unlawful sexual activity for the intention of arousing his/her own sexual interest, it is considered lewd conduct. Furthermore, it is also a crime to touch, solicit, or attempt to touch another person for sexual gratification. These acts are considered vulgar, disturbing, and offensive in nature, and will not be tolerated by judges, law enforcement, or members of the public.
Common acts of lewd conduct include but not limited to:
● Masturbation in public
● Indecent exposure
● Sex acts in public (intercourse, anal sex, oral sex, etc.)
Lewd conduct is normally considered a misdemeanor criminal charge. However, when an adult performs lewd acts in the presence of individuals under the age of 16, his/her criminal charges may increase to a felony. In spite of of whether you’re charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you should contact a skilled Tennessee sex crimes attorney immediately if you have been charged with lewd conduct.
