N.J.S.A. 2C: Lewdness Charges in New Jersey

In New Jersey, under N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4, you can be charged with lewdness if you expose yourself in public or in a private place visible to the public. The circumstances leading to your lewdness charges may vary — maybe an overindulgence during a night out, a misjudgment of privacy with your partner, or a false accusation. Regardless, the charges are serious and demand your utmost attention. The penalties are severe, potentially involving considerable prison time, hefty fines, and sex offender registration requirements.

Lewdness can be either a disorderly persons offense or an indictable offense:

  • Disorderly Persons Offense: If someone commits a blatantly lewd and offensive act that they know or reasonably expect is likely to be observed by non-consenting persons who would be affronted or alarmed.
  • Indictable Offense: If someone exposes their intimate parts with the intent of arousing or gratifying their sexual desire in circumstances where they know or reasonably expect that a child under 13 years of age is likely to observe them.

Conviction for Lewd Conduct in NJ

If you are convicted of lewdness as a disorderly persons offense in municipal court, you could face up to six months in the local county jail. (Although most first-time offenders can avoid a jail sentence.) However, if you're convicted of lewdness as an indictable offense at the superior court level, you're looking at up to 18 months in NJ State Prison. Furthermore, an indictable sex crime conviction may necessitate your registration as a convicted sex offender under Megan’s Law, which could severely hinder your future career prospects.

In such a precarious situation, it's essential not to let a single mistake define the rest of your life.
