San Antonio Indecent Exposure Defense Attorney
The crime of indecent exposure is more common than most people think. While in some instances of this type of sex crime are pranks, other instances are serious and are considered to be a criminal offense.
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, and going outside without clothing. One of the most common forms of indecent exposure is urinating in public.
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 dollars.
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.
