  • Two Cases Charging Open and Gross Lewdness Continued Without a Finding

    In April and May of 2023 our client was arrested and charged with open and gross lewdness, a felony in Massachusetts governed by G.L. c. 272 section 16. The allegations in both cases are very similar. In the first case, our client was driving through suburban Boston city street. He pulled up to a stop sign and got the attention of a young woman. When she approached his car she noticed that he had no pants on, his penis was exposed and erect. As to the second case, the victim reported that our client engaged in similar conduct however this time he was manipulating his erect penis. The cases were joined for pretrial purposes. We had our client meet with a forensic psychologist, something that we often recommend in cases like this one. The doctor identified triggers for our client prompting this type of behavior. Moreover, with therapy and abstention from the substances that cause this behavior the doctor believed that this would not happen again. Consequently, the judge agreed to continue these matters without a finding (CWOF). Provided our client remains free from criminal legal problems the case will be dismissed.
