Florida Lewd Conduct Defense Attorneys
Lewd or lascivious conduct is defined as being either the intentional, vulgar touching of someone under the age of 16 years old, or the solicitation of a person 16 years of age or younger to commit a sensual act.
The severity of the consequences for lewd and lascivious behavior depend on whether the defendant was over or under the age of 18 years old when the incident occurred.
If the offender was over 18 years of age, he or she would face a second degree felony concurrent with 2.5-15 years in prison, probation, or the possible registration as a sex offender, predator, or both. The consequences could possibly be more severe if this is not the defendant’s first offense.
If the offender was under the age of 18 years old when the act was committed, he or she is facing a third degree felony punishable by 2.5-5 years in prison, probation, or the possible registration as a sex offender, predator, or both. The consequences could possibly be more severe if this is not the defendant’s first offense.
