Strategic Defense Against Charges Of Indecent Exposure And Lewd Acts
An arrest or conviction for indecent exposure can tarnish a person’s reputation and have long-term effects on employment opportunities. In these cases, police regularly arrest gay men at public parks, public beaches and public facilities, often as a result of entrapment techniques. Even if consensual acts are committed out of sight, and with the intention of privacy, an improper arrest may occur.

Lewd And Lascivious Acts In The Presence Of A Minor

We encourage you to contact Aiken & O’Halloran today if are accused of this offense.
