Lewd acts with a minor can be defined as the touching of a child or minor anywhere on the body, even outside the clothing, with the intent of arousing, appealing, or gratifying lust, passions or the sexual desires of you or the child. The prosecution will strive to prove that you willfully touched any part of the minor’s body or willfully caused the minor to touch their own body, your body, or another person’s body.
