What Is Considered Indecent Exposure?

A violation of California's indecent exposure law consists of the willful exposure of one’s genitals motivated by a desire to either achieve sexual gratification for yourself or to offend the other person. California indecent exposure law is quite murky, nebulous, and vague, which means that you may have done something that you did not know was a crime and still be facing charges.

A few examples of crimes which could be considered indecent exposure include:

  • A woman exposing her bare breasts at a rock concert in order to sexually arouse others
  • A man driving down the street and exposing his erect penis to others for excitement
  • A prankster spreading his buttocks before a group of individuals in order to offend them

Punishment for Indecent Exposure

A first offense for indecent exposure can make you vulnerable to county jail incarceration for up to six months, as well as having to pay a base fine of $1,000.00. For a second indecent exposure conviction, the consequences can be even worse, potentially subjecting you to a state prison commitment of anywhere from 16 months to 3 years. The most horrific consequence, is having to register as a sex offender for the remainder of your life.

At our firm, our West Covina sex crimes defense attorneys can marshal powerful and effective legal arguments and defenses on your behalf to defeat your charges. We want to help you beat your case and come out the other side without a conviction.

This may include the following defense strategies:

  • Lack of evidence to show that the “flashing” ever happened
  • Unreliable or prevaricating (deceitful) witness
  • Misidentification, mistaken identity
  • You did not willfully expose your genitals

We are available 24/7 to hear your situation. Call us at (626) 205-3794 for a free case consultation.
