The crime of exposing a portion or portions of one’s body (often genital areas or the breast areas of a female) in public, where such exposure violates moral or other standards of appropriate behavior (e.g. urinating in public or appearing naked in a public place.)
The maximum penalty is 6 months in a county house of correction (HOC) and/or a fine of $200.
In order to prove that the Defendant is guilty of Indecent Exposure, the prosecutor must prove 3 things beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the Defendant exposed his/her genitals (and/or female breasts) to one or more persons.
- That the Defendant did so intentionally.
- That one or more persons were offended by the Defendant’s actions.
Defense Strategies for Indecent Exposure:
Reducing the charge from Indecent Exposure to Disorderly Conduct is one strategy to minimize the consequences of this charge. Although Indecent Exposure is not a sex offender registry crime, the accusation can be equally devastating. I will negotiate with the District Attorney and/or police to convince them to drop the charges. I will also file multiple motions to dismiss the case for lack of probable cause or to suppress any evidence obtained from an illegal search and seizure.
Although the strategy will vary from case to case, you can be assured that I will use all my years of legal experience to get you the best outcome possible.
