What Is Indecent Exposure?
This misdemeanor offense consists of:
- Exposing your genitals or anus to someone else in hopes of arousing or gratifying them
- Doing this recklessly, disregarding who is nearby and who may see
The other person or persons who witness the exposure do not necessarily have to object to it. You could be convicted of indecent exposure even if the person near you is a willing participant.
What Are the Penalties for Indecent Exposure?
For a first offense, you face up to a $2,000 fine and a maximum of 180 days in jail. You face higher fines and more jail time for a second offense, plus you must register with the Texas sex offender database.
How Can an Attorney Help Fight Indecent Exposure Charges?
An experienced defense lawyer understands there are many ways to poke holes in an indecent exposure charge. Without evidence, it can be difficult to prove the exposure actually took place. Also, an attorney can argue the defendant meant the action as a prank, such as mooning someone or relieving yourself in an alleyway in lieu of a public restroom. There’s no sexual motivation behind those acts, and so they should not be considered indecent exposure.
