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 do whatever we can to keep clients out of jail.
