What Is A Lewd Act With A Minor?
Ohio law considers any sexual conduct with a child between the ages of 12 to 16 years of age to be unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. A lewd act differs from sex with a minor because the act generally does not involve any kind of penetration, but the specifics of your case will determine the applicable charges.
Our Delaware, Ohio, defense lawyers will defend you from accusations of:
- Showing pornography to a child
- Exposing genitals to a child
- Sending inappropriate photos or videos
- Touching a child
Charges of a lewd act with a minor can be either a felony or misdemeanor, with a conviction carrying up to five years in prison. A conviction also carries the penalty of having to register as a sex offender, which can affect where you can live and if you can be around children.
