Boston Massachusetts Indecent Exposure Defense

What is Indecent Exposure?

Indecent exposure is the intentional exposure by an individual of a portion or portions of his or her own body (genitals, or in women, breasts) under circumstances where the exposure is likely to be deemed offensive.

At the law firm of Lewin & Lewin, we represent people accused of indecent exposure (a misdemeanor), and open and gross lewdness (its felony counterpart). To set up a free consultation, please call us at 978-258-3520 or contact our Boston offices online.

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

Our Approach

Boston Indecent Exposure Attorney Robert D. Lewin has handled hundreds of indecent exposure cases and open and gross lewdness cases throughout his career. In representing clients charged with indecent exposure or open and gross lewdness, often we are able to get charges disposed without actually going to court. In fact, we resolve many cases prior to the issuance of a criminal complaint. We sometimes refer clients to psychologists for a short-term program which may help gain a favorable outcome. We do whatever we can to keep clients out of jail.
