Engaging in or Soliciting Lewd Acts in California

Have Our Ventura Criminal Defense Attorney on Your Side

Lewd conduct is defined as touching your private parts (or someone else's private parts) for the purpose of sexual gratification or to annoy or offend someone else. You violate California Penal Code 647(1) when you engage in lewd or dissolute conduct in public or you solicit someone else to do so.

If you are charged with engaging in or soliciting lewd conduct in public and you need to hire a lawyer for representation, Wilfert Law, PC is willing to provide our exceptional legal services. With more than a decade of experience, our Ventura criminal defense lawyer has a comprehensive understanding of state law to guide you through the intricacies of the legal process.

Penalties for Lewd Acts

Lewd conduct is a misdemeanor offense, punishable by a maximum county jail sentence of six months and a fine of up to $1,000. However, judges often grant “misdemeanor probation,” which entails little or no jail time.

Conditions of a probation include:

  • Fines
  • Counseling
  • A requirement that you stay clear from the location where the crime was committed
  • An AIDS test
