The sex crime known as “indecent exposure” occurs when an individual exposes their genitals or breasts in a public place for the purpose of sexual self-gratification, the sexual gratification of another, or to offend someone. This is a surprisingly common offense; many people may have committed it at one point in their life without even realizing it. Even something as simple as relieving yourself on the side of a public highway in the middle of a long road trip could result in you being convicted of indecent exposure and lead to serious penalties.

Indecent exposure can be charged for many different types of public exposure, meaning that you could be charged even for an accident or a silly prank. The only exception to the rule is for breastfeeding: a woman cannot be convicted if she exposes her breast in order to feed an infant.
An indecent exposure conviction is generally considered to be a first degree misdemeanor, carrying penalties of up to 12 months in jail and fine of up to $1,000. However, if the victim is a child, you could face harsher penalties. You will also be required to register as a sex offender for life, which could have lasting consequences on your future employment, living location, and more.
