What to Do If You Have Been Charged With Indecent Exposure
Indecent exposure is defined as the illegal exposing of one's genital area, breasts or other "private parts" in a public area where other people are present and thus able to witness the act. It is usually done with the express purpose of offending or arousing others, or arousing the offender. In the state of Florida, indecent exposure is a sex crime and is charged as a first degree misdemeanor. If convicted, the individual will face up to a year in jail and/or fines up to $1000.
Even the childhood pranks of mooning (showing one's buttocks) and streaking (running naked in public) are treated severely by law enforcement officials and could result in an indecent exposure charge. Should the indecent exposure occur in the presence of a minor child, less than 16 years of age, the sex crime can be charged as a second degree felony and is punishable by up to 15 years in prison and fines up to $10,000.

It is urgent you contact our firm whether the exposure was accidental or not, because conviction of such a crime can not only mean jail time and fines, but mandatory sex offender registration as well.
