Penalties for Indecent Exposure
When an individual is convicted of indecent exposure, the circumstances surrounding the case have much to do with the penalty you may face if convicted. If the alleged exposure was to a child under a certain age, you may face a felony sexual charge, and be forced to suffer the punishment of jail time and fines. In extreme cases, you may be required to register as a sex offender. This occurs in cases of repeat offenses of exposure of the genitals or other private area to a child. In other cases, it may be a misdemeanor offense, even a prank such as mooning or failing to have access to a bathroom and being forced to urinate outside and unexpectedly being observed, and law enforcement alerted, leading to an arrest.
We fight to reduce the damage to your criminal record by negotiating for a lesser charge, such as disorderly conduct, which may require some community service, but won’t be there on your criminal record causing you future difficulties when prospective employers do a background check. The outcome of the case is important, and we will take action to fight for you, including determining whether you have actually violated the statutes and your actions actually being a violation of the laws of the state. We take an aggressive stance for our clients, and have an impressive record of successfully defending clients facing charges of indecent exposure.
