Lewdness (sometime called indecent exposure) is a serious offense, and includes the following:
- Having sex in public
- Exposing one’s private parts in public
- Masturbating in public
Usually, lewdness is a class B misdemeanor, although if you commit an act of lewdness and you’re on a sew-offender list or have been previously convicted of lewdness, then you can be charged with a felony. In addition to criminal sanctions, the public humiliation of this type of conviction is severe.
Public urination is another type of lewdness charge in Utah. While this is prosecuted as a class C misdemeanor, it too can carry heavy consequence for your future.
