Public Lewdness Bill Returns to New York Legislature

Fire-Island-Nude-BeachAssemblyman Ken Zebrowski (D-New City) has reintroduced a bill that would increase penalties for “public lewdness” in New York State. The bill provides for felony conviction and addition to the sex offender registry for such acts as exposing oneself where a child under 14 is “likely to be present.” The same bill passed the State Senate last year, but failed in the Assembly. The text of the bill is here.

We discussed the bill and some of its potential consequences here.
