A person convicted of lewd molestation in Oklahoma could face the following penalties:
- 3 to 20 years imprisonment

- Mandatory sex offender registration
- High fines (based on misdemeanor or felony charge)

Possible Defenses to Lewd Molestation
With so much on the line after being accused of lewd molestation, you need to start thinking of how to defend yourself right away. Let our criminal defense attorneys put their heads together to analyze your case and approach the situation from multiple angles. With our legal advocacy and representation, there may be more than one viable defense to use in your argument.
You may have a strong defense if the prosecution cannot prove that:
- You knew the age of the alleged minor.
- You were the one who conducted the lewd molestation.
- The acts you did conduct were in fact sexually motivated.
Remember that consent is not considered for lewd molestation charges. If a minor allows another person to touch his or her body in a sexual manner, lewd molestation has still occurred. You cannot base your defense on consent and hope to achieve the best possible outcome.
