While this crime is usually deemed a misdemeanor, indecent exposure is a sex crime. A conviction for indecent exposure will result in a criminal record and possibly registration as a sex offender.
For this reason, an indecent exposure charge must be taken extremely seriously. Protect your rights by hiring an experienced attorney, one who knows how to defend sex crimes.
Public sexual indecency is the intentional engagement in any sexual act that is considered reckless, dangerous or offensive. These acts are knowingly performed in the presence of other adults or minors.
These acts may include:
• An act of sexual contact
• An act of oral sexual contact
• An act of sexual intercourse
• An act of bestiality
Public sexual indecency is a class 1 misdemeanor, while public sexual indecency in the presence of a minor is a class 5 felony. The consequences of being convicted of public lewd acts are typically the same as other sex crimes, and laws may vary from one state to another.
These may include one or more of the following:
• Prison sentencing
• Registration as a sex offender
• Monetary fines
• Completion of a rehabilitation program
• Mandatory Counseling
If you are facing charges or are under investigation for a sex crime offense you need to retain legal representation immediately.
