• This action was intentional, and
• At least one person was offended by this exposure.
Public urination may be considered indecent exposure under these guidelines.
How Can I Help?
Even though the guidelines for indecent exposure are very specific, an experienced Criminal Defense Attorney. can make it very difficult to prove these three critical elements. However, even if the prosecutor could prove them, as your representative, I can file motions to suppress or dismiss, negotiate a reduced charge, or convince the prosecutor or judge to impose a lesser penalty.
A typical strategy is to bargain for a reduction of the charge of Indecent Exposure to Disorderly Conduct. Just changing the name of the charge is helpful to you because the term Indecent Exposure could leave you feeling exposed in ways you didn’t consider. I may also file multiple motions in your defense in order to convince the District Attorney to completely drop the charges and let you move on after this difficult episode in your life.
