Indecent exposure is the crime of displaying one's genitalia to one or more people in a public place. California Penal Code section 314 makes it a crime to expose one's self in a public place. Both people who intend and those who do not intend to expose themselves, such as public urination, can be charged with indecent exposure.
A misdemeanor indecent exposure conviction, under California Penal Code 647, carries a penalty of up to five (5) years of misdemeanor probation, up to one (1) year in the county jail, and a fine of up to $1,000.00 plus court penalties and assessments. A second, or subsequent offense of indecent exposure, can be charged as a felony and carry much harsher penalties, including state prison sentences. An indecent exposure conviction requires lifetime sex offender registration. The issue of intent is factored into the case.
If you have been charged with indecent exposure, you need an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer on your side that can represent your interests. A criminal defense lawyer experienced in sexual offenses can help protect your freedom, your criminal record and possibly avoid sexual registration requirements.
