Lewdness N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4

Were you charged with Lewdness in New Jersey? A lewdness attorney for Hamilton Township Scenic Overlook can help you. The good news is that lewdness, NJSA 2C:14-4, can be considered a disorderly persons offense in New Jersey, which means that it will be handled in Municipal Court. Additionally, it is technically not considered a crime then.

We are asked a lot, “what are the penalties for lewdness? Will I have to register as a sex offender?  I was charged with lewdness at the scenic overlook in Hamilton Township, New Jersey, will I go to jail?” No matter what your question is, we can answer it and help you.    

If you were charged as a result of being at the scenic overlook, I already know it was a NJ State Police trooper that issued the complaint. I’m guessing they did not fingerprint and process you. It is okay to be angry and scared right now. You are not the first person to go through this.

What Is Considered Lewd?

Any flagrantly lewd and offensive act which he knows or reasonably expects is likely to be observed by other nonconsenting person who would be affronted or alarmed.
