Public Lewdness and the Penal Code

According to Texas Penal Code § 21.07, a person can be charged with public lewdness if they are caught in public committing an act of:

  • Sexual contact
  • Deviant sexual intercourse
  • Sexual intercourse
  • Sexual contact between a person and an animal or foul

Additionally, a person may be charged with public lewdness if they commit any of these acts in a public place where a person might be offended or alarmed. Conviction of public lewdness is considered a Class A misdemeanor, which can carry a fine of up to $4,000 and/or up to a year in jail. These are not minor consequences and, as such, a person charged with such a crime deserves to have legal support that will fight for their rights.
