San Diego Lewd Acts Lawyer
Lewd Acts With a Minor and Lewd Conduct in Public
The law governing lewd acts with a child (California Penal Code 288) is extremely broad in the way it defines lewd acts. It can include touching a child or minor anywhere on their body. Under the law, even a hug or a kiss on the cheek can be charged as a lewd act — if the prosecution believes there was a sexual motive.
At the San Diego Law Office of Vikas Bajaj, APC, we know how to fight overzealous prosecutors who seem more interested in appearing tough on child sexual abuse than on what actually happened in a particular case.
If you have been charged with lewd acts, lewd or lascivious conduct, indecent exposure or any other sex crime in Southern California, we can help. Contact our office today for a free, completely confidential with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
Three Things You Should Know About These Charges
1) If you are charged with lewd acts and you are convicted or plead guilty, you could face time in state prison and lifetime registration as a sex offender. Even after you have served your time, you will continue to face consequences. It may be difficult or impossible to find work. Your reputation in the community will almost certainly be ruined.
2) Even a conviction for public indecency (indecent exposure, lewd conduct in public, public urination, etc.) may result in your being labeled a sex offender. If you are required to register as a sex offender and you fail to register, you could face time in prison.
3) False allegations happen frequently. Everybody — police, prosecutors, judges, defense attorneys — knows this. And yet men and women continue to be charged with child molestation or lewd acts with a minor based on unsupported allegations or outright lies. We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of individuals facing serious criminal charges based on false allegations.
If you have been accused, you need an experienced, aggressive defense. There is simply too much at stake to entrust your case — and your future — to an untried lawyer. We understand how these cases work. We have the skills and experience you can trust.
