The Stan Schneider and Ned Barnet team of criminal defense attorneys decisively handle all sexual crimes, including lewdness offences involving:

Lewd conduct involving other adults may be treated as a misdemeanor or a felony. Lewdness may also be charged as an add-on offense to another criminal sexual charge such as sexual assault, battery and Internet crimes.

Felony Charges Involving Minors

Lewd behavior involving minors is a felony offense in Texas. A criminal conviction for lewdness where children are the victims can mean heavy fines, prison time and possible lifetime sex offender registration as a sexual predator where ever you live. Registered sex offender information is accessible to the public and may be used by current or prospective employers, schools, neighborhood coalitions and others, making it extremely difficult to get an apartment, a job or an education.

If you are convicted of a repeat lewd conduct offense you can face even stricter punishments, including mandatory psychological treatment and confinement to a mental hospital. Our team of lawyers works hard to help clients avoid the often overwhelming public pressure on prosecutors to convict them, significant social stigma, and the serious legal consequences these types of sex crimes carry.
