Penn Station Exposure / lewdness charges dismissed for college student

Penn Station Exposure / lewdness charges dismissed for college student


Our client was arrested and given a desk appearance ticket for allegedly masturbating with another person inside a Penn Station bathroom. This other person turned out to be an undercover police officer. Our client contacted us for help because he was studying for a career that frequently involved background checks and he knew that conviction for lewdness would be difficult to ever overcome. We took a look at the complaint and the police paperwork and noticed mistakes that the police made. In court, we maintained our client’s innocence and pushed for dismissal. After several months of negotiation and during which the prosecutor was pushing for a criminal record and punishment under a class A misdemeanor, we successfully negotiated a deal where our client would only plead guilty to disorderly conduct and complete community service but no criminal record, no jail, and no sex offender program.
