Strong Defense For Lewd & Lascivious Conduct Charges

There are many situations where lewd and lascivious charges may be filed against you. You may have believed you were alone, been pulling a prank or dare or been "goofing around." However, when not effectively mitigated, these charges can damage your reputation, career and future.

In fact, some of these charges can require that you register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. This can create lifelong difficulties for you when it comes to housing, employment and relationships.

When To Call An Attorney

It's important to speak with an experienced legal professional the moment you are charged. A professional can help at any point in the process, but with lewd and lascivious charges, the earlier you speak with an attorney, the better.

Defenses To Lewd And Lascivious Behavior Charges

There are certain steps to take in cases involving these charges. There are also definite, effective defenses to some charges. While every situation is different, your case may involve a defense that includes:

  • Victim consent
  • Faulty or weak evidence
  • Mistaken identity
  • Your state of mental health

Understanding What's At Stake

Under Kansas law, if you are charged with having participated in public sexual acts knowing that you were in a public place and could be seen by others, or with publicly exposing a sex organ to someone who is not your spouse and who did not consent, you could face some serious legal ramifications that include misdemeanor or felony charges depending on the circumstance and age of the other person. The same is true of exposure charges.
