Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition in Florida

Protect Your Reputation with Florida Sex Crimes Attorneys from Musca Law

Florida law defines lewd or lascivious exhibition, that is, the performance of sexual acts in front of minors under the age of 16, as a sexually criminal offense. Lewd or lascivious exhibition does not involve any kind of sexual or physical contact with children, but merely the act of exposing children's minds to sexual activity. Masturbation, inappropriate touching of the genitals and other sexual acts are all considered lewd and lascivious exhibition.

An accusation of lewd or lascivious exhibition can result in severe consequences. Additionally, these charges may be unfounded. For example, a child may lie about the exhibition in order to take revenge on an offending adult or perhaps made it up as a joke. Whatever the situation, it is imperative that you retain the experienced representation of a Florida sex crimes lawyer from Musca Law to defend your name, uphold your rights, and fight for a secure future.
