Public Indecency & Prostitution

Fought by Our New Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyers

Engaging in or promoting prostitution is an offense. The promotion of prostitution of a person under 18 is a crime of the second degree. Promoting one’s spouse to engage in prostitution or engaging in sexual activity with a person under 18 is a crime of the third degree. Certain kinds of other promotion of prostitution are considered fourth-degree crimes and engaging in prostitution with an adult is considered a disorderly persons offense but sequent violations are escalated to a fourth-degree crime.

Loitering for the Purpose of Engaging in Prostitution

It’s a disorderly persons offense to wander, remain, or prowl about for the purpose of engaging in prostitution. Such illegal conduct includes repeatedly stopping cars or pedestrians in a public place.

Obscenity

It’s a crime in New Jersey to sell or display any obscene material to anyone unless the municipality where it occurs specifically permits the sale or display. While the statute attempts to define what is considered obscenity in 2C:34-2a(1), there is a lot of room for argument and interpretation. Depending upon the circumstances, a defendant charged with violating the obscenity laws may have a valid legal argument that they were practicing free speech.

Diseased Person Committing an Act of Sexual Penetration

If a person is knowingly inflicted with an STD such as gonorrhea, syphilis, or herpes, it is a fourth-degree crime to engage in sexual penetration which includes oral sex without first telling the other person. Under 2C:34-5b, if the person knows they have HIV or AIDS and they fail to tell the other person, then it’s a crime of the third degree. If you are charged with any of the above offenses, you should consider hiring a criminal defense lawyer in New Jersey to fight for the best outcome to your case.
