Indecent Exposure Charges Can Have Serious Penalties
Indecent exposure is the criminal act of intentionally exposing one’s sexual organs in an offensive or vulgar manner to a member of the public or in a public place.
Charges for this crime will be filed against anyone who:
- Appears naked in public
- Masturbates in public
- Exposes themselves to a minor
- Exposes themselves via a webcam, internet chat room, etc.
- Touches their genitals in a vulgar or offensive way, causing others to feel uncomfortable or alarmed
If you have been accused of indecent exposure, working with a skilled sex crime attorney is of utmost importance. Although indecent exposure is a misdemeanor offense, you will still face up to one year in prison and up to $1,000 in fines upon conviction. If you exposed yourself to a minor, not only will you face felony charges and enhanced penalties, but you may also face additional charges for child sexual abuse and sexual assault.
