Charged with lewd or lascivious conduct in Orange County?

Pranksters are often shocked to learn that mooning, streaking and more are all considered acts of lewdness when tried in the court of law. Similarlyl, amorous couples who engage in sexual activity in a restroom, vehicle or a theater can find themselves facing severe legal consequences. These may seem like a lark at the time, but they are viewed without humor by police and prosecutors. Lewd acts also include public flashing, sex and oral sex and more. If convicted, you will have a criminal record which could be a source of embarrassment for the rest of your life.
