Newark Federal District Charge for Lewdness at Gunnison Beach
Our website is packed with information regarding lewdness charges at Sandy Hook and defending a Gunnison Beach lewdness case. The basic premise that you must keep in mind if you are facing a lewdness offense of this nature is that you are involved in what is literally a federal case since Sandy Hook is a Federal Park. Your lewdness charge will not even be heard in Monmouth County since there is no longer a court at Fort Monmouth. The matter will be heard at the Federal District Court in Newark New Jersey. The federal judge presiding over your case will “assimilate” New Jersey Law; this is basically a fancy word for applying NJ law to decide your innocence or guilt. The related law is contained at N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4 and provides that:
a. A person commits a disorderly persons offense if he does any flagrantly lewd and offensive act which he knows or reasonably expects is likely to be observed by other nonconsenting persons who would be affronted or alarmed.
b. A person commits a crime of the fourth degree if:
(1) He exposes his intimate parts for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the actor or of any other person under circumstances where the actor knows or reasonably expects he is likely to be observed by a child who is less than 13 years of age where the actor is at least four years older than the child.
(2) He exposes his intimate parts for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the actor or of any other person under circumstances where the actor knows or reasonably expects he is likely to be observed by a person who because of mental disease or defect is unable to understand the sexual nature of the actor’s conduct.
c. As used in this section:
“lewd acts” shall include the exposing of the genitals for the purpose of arousing or gratifying the sexual desire of the actor or of any other person.
While the overwhelming percentage of Gunnison Beach lewdness cases involve a disorderly persons offense (i.e. misdemeanor charge) under subsection (a), a conviction results in a criminal conviction for “lewdness”. This means that every background check following a conviction will reveal that the accused committed a lewd act, something that can be extremely unfavorable when it comes to securing a job, professional license or other endeavors.
