Although the acts involved that lead to an obsecenity charge do not seem severe, the offense of Obscenity is a felony in Louisiana. It carries a sentencing range of six months to 10 years in prison.
An example of an Obscenity charge could be when someone is partying on Bourbon Street and gets a little carried away and exposes himself or herself. It is up to the police officers, if one witnessed the exposure, to decide whether or not to make an arrest. If the officer makes an arrest, the District Attorney then evaluates how to proceed against you.
This is a charge that should never be taken lightly. Mr. Barkemeyer is experienced in handling these types of charges and how to work towards obtaining the best outcome possible.
