Fort Worth Public Indecency Charges

Call a Fort Worth Criminal Defense Lawyer Now

Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of lovemaking in a public place? You may want to think twice before committing this taboo—it’s highly illegal, and carries stiff consequences if you are convicted in court. This and several other sexual acts fall under the umbrella of “Public Lewdness,” identified by Texas Penal Code 21.07. However, it does not include the crime of indecent exposure.

If you have been arrested and accused of public lewdness, you should retain the legal counsel of a Fort Worth criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Penalties of Public Indecency

Public indecency is considered a sex crime, which carry heavy penalties in Texas, and can have a serious impact on your future. A skilled criminal defense lawyer can help you fight back against your charges, using a well-orchestrated legal strategy.

A public indecency conviction is a Class A misdemeanor, and can carry penalties including:

  • Jail time (not more than a year)
  • A large fine (not more than $4,000)

It’s important to note that these penalties are for a first conviction; an attorney will be able to better advise you to the penalties you will be facing if your charges include any aggravating factors, such as being a repeat offender.
