Believe it or not, public urination is not against the law in New Jersey – at least at the state level.
Most municipalities in the state have ordinances prohibiting it, which means that if a cop spots you, you are subject to a ticket and fine.
This is the best case scenario when it comes to public urination, because many police officers take the opportunity to not only write up a public urination citation, but also assert something extra, like a lewdness charge.
If you are charged with something like lewdness stemming from a public urination citation, you need to hire an attorney right away.
Conviction for these more serious charges can land you on the sex offender registry for the rest of your life, and destroy your future.
Attorney Matthew Reisig can protect you from overzealous prosecutors looking to boost minor offenses into something much more serious.
