ARD for Megan’s Law Mandatory Reporting Charge

Apr 22 2022, by Michael Fienman in Case Results

A man charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness, disorderly conduct, and summary charge for obscene gestures sought legal representation from Attorney Fienman and was admitted to the ARD program.

The original offense was a mandatory Megan’s Law reporting offense, but the client is not subject to public notification requirements as a result of his admission to ARD.

After a woman reported the alleged offense that occurred in the parking lot of a shopping center, the defendant was arrested and charged.

While most attorneys would not have considered applying for ARD in such a case, Mr. Fienman pushed for it and got his client admitted.

The client is subject to a two-year term of probation and supervision under sex offender treatment probation, but upon successful completion of the program, the case is eligible for expungement.

Had this case gone to trial and resulted in a loss, the client would have likely been incarcerated, placed on a longer term of probation and subject to Megan’s Law reporting requirements.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
