San Antonio Indecent Exposure Defense Attorney
What Qualifies as Indecent Exposure?
The crime of indecent exposure is more common than most people think. While some instances of this type of sex crime are pranks, other instances are serious and are considered to be a criminal offense. As such, it can carry serious penalties that may ultimately threaten your future and your freedom.
The act itself is defined as the purposeful display of a person’s genitals in public. Generally, this act includes the knowledge that one’s exposure will be seen. In addition, this act is purposefully done with the intent for some form of sexual gratification or to offend others.
This crime can be sexual behavior in a public setting, public masturbation, or going outside without clothing. One of the most common forms of indecent exposure is urinating in public.

Penalties for Indecent Exposure in Texas
Whatever the circumstances of your indecent exposure charges, remember that the burden of proof is on the prosecution. The crime itself is considered a misdemeanor. Under the law, the charge will be punished by up to 6 months of jail time, as well as a fine of up to $200.
An indecent exposure crime committed in the presence of a minor carries a much harsher punishment, as well as the possibility of having to register as a sex offender. A permanent record of this type of conviction can negatively affect a person’s life. If you qualify, you may be able to have your record expunged. However, you must meet certain strict criteria to do so.
