The Texas Penal Code describes the crime of public lewdness as:

  • Engaging in sexual intercourse in a public place.
  • Engaging in sexual intercourse in a private place but being reckless about whether another individual is present and might reasonably be offended by your sexual acts.

The Penal Code goes on to state public lewdness may also extend to other acts such as sexual contact, for example:

  • Groping another person’s genitals
  • Deviant sexual acts (Oral or Anal Sex)
  • Bestiality

Crimes of a sexual nature often carry a certain stigma, and many employers and landlords hesitate to rent to people with convictions on their records. Our office can help. Jason Trumpler has been practicing criminal law for 20 years and has taken over 100 cases to trial before a jury. Call today to discuss your options at 512-457-5200.

Potential Consequences

Generally, public lewdness is not a crime where the State will require you to register as a sex offender if they convict. However, a public lewdness conviction is a Class A Misdemeanor and can have severe consequences.

If the State convicts you of a Class A Misdemeanor, you may face:

  • Up to 1-year in jail;
  • Fine up to $4,000;
  • Court costs and fees;
  • Probation.

Also, a final conviction will appear on any background check that any entity in the future decides to run on you.
