The collateral consequences of pleading guilty to a lewdness offense can be significant. Although thousands of visitors take advantage of the clothing optional beach located at the Gateway National Park, Sandy Hook, (Monmouth County, Town of Highlands) New Jersey, the U.S. Park Police Rangers have a zero tolerance for any activity which would constitute lewdness under federal or New Jersey state law. Accordingly, many visitors to the beach might engage in conduct that would appear innocuous to the visitor, but illegal in the eyes of the rangers. For example any inappropriate touching of the private parts by the visitor or his or her guest will be considered illegal and subject the violator to immediate arrest and summons to the federal district court in Newark for prosecution by the United States Attorney of New Jersey.
Therefore, if you have been charged with such an offense or any related or other charges at the Sandy Hook National Park, you are strongly advised to consult the services of an experienced New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney who has handled many such cases (24-years of experience) with satisfactory results for the alleged offender.
