Lewdness in the subway charges dropped and lowered down to non-criminal
Our client was observed allegedly engaging in lewd auto-erotic behavior
in the subway. When
arrested, the police claimed that our client was intoxicated. Our client
contacted us for help and was nervous about going to
jail, a criminal record, and because our client wasn’t a citizen, he
was worried about possible immigration consequences from any outcome.
After we fought in court for several months, we were able to negotiate
a deal with the prosecutor to have the criminal charges dropped and covered
by a guilty plea only to a non-criminal violation called disorderly conduct
along with some counseling. There was no
jail, no criminal record, and no probation.
