Irvington Man Accused of Lewd Act at Hoboken Train Station

Irvington, NJ Man Allegedly Exposed Himself to Woman at Hoboken PATH Station

Irvington Lewdness ChargesPort Authority police arrested an Irvington, NJ man who allegedly committed a lewd act at the Hoboken PATH station. The suspect is Karim Durant, a 37-year-old resident of Irvington in Essex County, New Jersey. At around 4:15 p.m. on a Sunday, Durant reportedly approached a female in her mid-20s at the train station and “brushed against her” in a sexual manner. According to the victim, Durant then calmly walked away and out of sight. However, just a few moments later, Durant allegedly returned and caught the woman’s attention while she stood on the train platform. He then allegedly exposed himself to the woman and committed the lewd act.

The disturbing incident did not end with the act of lewdness. Durant reportedly followed the woman as she got onto a train headed toward 33rd Street in New York City. At some point, the victim notified law enforcement about the situation. Port Authority police officers later found Durant and placed him under arrest.

Lewdness Charges & Penalties in New Jersey

Durant has been charged with numerous criminal charges: lewdness, stalking, harassment, and disorderly conduct. A conviction on any of these charges would likely carry severe penalties that include prison time, fines, and possibly even a requirement to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law.

Lewdness is a sex crime that is addressed in the New Jersey Criminal Code under N.J.S.A. 2C:14-4. The statute classifies lewdness as either a disorderly persons offense or a felony-level offense, depending on the circumstances of the act. A person can be charged with lewdness if they intentionally expose their private parts in a public place and the lewd act was likely to be observed by a non-consenting person. If the offender is charged with a disorderly persons offense, a conviction could lead to a sentence of up to six (6) months in the local county jail. A more serious charge for felony lewdness could result in the offender being sentenced to up to 18 months in NJ State Prison.
