Indecent Exposure Defense
What is indecent exposure?
Indecent exposure is the act of showing your genitals in public, usually for the purpose of shocking people. Sometimes, indecent exposure charges accompany other
sex charges, like
public lewdness. This charge typically pertains to the exposure of either the defendant's anus or other genitals either to satisfy a sexual arousal or to purposefully arouse. Usually, crimes of this nature are committed with a reckless disregard for who might be able to view the act or who might be offended by viewing it.
