Posted on April 2nd, 2010 No Comments

While many people have varying definitions of lewd behavior, Massachusetts law considers lewd behavior to involve exposing certain body parts intentionally to people who might be offended by the act. These body parts include genitals, buttocks, or female breasts.

Individuals convicted  of open and gross lewdness and lascivious behavior can be punished by imprisonment for up to 3 years in state prison. They can also be fined up to $300.00.

If you have been charged with an offense related to lewd conduct, contact the Massachusetts sex crime lawyer James Powderly at 508-343-0676.
