Question: What is considered public lewdness in Texas?
Public lewdness is considered a sex crime. In Texas, public lewdness is one of those offenses that can be almost innocent behavior. Events that could be public lewdness would be if two people go off and think they’re totally hidden, but it’s a public place, and they commit some sort of sex act. Or it can be someone in a private place being reckless about the possibility of somebody being present who would be offended.
The fact is, it’s easy to get charged with public lewdness, but a lot of times if you put up a fight to this type of charge, the DA will work something out that you can avoid a conviction on this case.
