Indecent Exposure/Open and Gross Lewdness

In Massachusetts, the crime of indecent exposure is a misdemeanor. However, if convicted, individuals may face penalties ranging from probation to a house of correction sentence depending on his or her record. Open and gross lewdness is a felony and carries the potential of three years in the state prison.

At Lewin & Lewin, we have represented clients charged with all types of indecent exposure and open and gross lewdness, including the following:

  • Cases in which men drive up and down the highway exposing themselves to women in SUVs or other high vehicles
  • Cases in which men pull off the side of the road and ask women for directions, at which point they expose their genitals
  • Other cases in which the exposure of genitals or breasts is intended to cause arousal, alarm or offense

“We lived in another state hundred of miles away when we received the dreaded call our son was in trouble. We found Bob Lewin by divine intervention. He promised me that he would treat our son like one of his own sons and that we would be happy with the outcome. He is an amazing attorney. He is professional, highly intelligent and caring. He kept us informed at all times. If you can afford his fee and he takes your case you will be in good hands. My only regret is that he is not licensed to practice law in the state in which we reside.” Anonymous

“I highly recommend Attorney Lewin for all criminal proceedings. I was charged with identity fraud and credit card fraud and at the end my case received a VERY favorable disposition which allowed me to retain my no guilty plea without admission. At the beginning I was afraid and confused of what may happen but Attorney Lewin provided me with a clear understanding of what options I will have, understand the entire process clearly and most importantly his time whenever I had a question. He was very responsive and flexible with his time, which few times included late night meetings to accommodate my schedule. Attorney Lewin is a true professional, highly respected by fellow attorneys, judges and prosecutors which I personally observed. Mistakes happen, investing in a highly knowledgable and professional attorney is priceless! Thank you Attorney Lewin for all of your help!” B.P.
