Arrested for Indecent Exposure?

Get Defense from a Miami Sex Crime Attorney

If you were arrested because a law enforcement officer found you in violation of this law, it is important that you understand what consequences that one could face. While not as severe as other types of crimes, the effects of this type of charge can be very damaging to one’s reputation and future going forth.

For example, it may become difficult to find a job, go to school, or apply for credit to purchase a home or car. Conviction of any type of sex crime will also require one to register as a sex offender, which will be publicly available information for anyone to view.

Do not let an indecent exposure charge ruin your good name! Let our Miami sex crime lawyers handle your case and protect your legal rights.

How the Law Defines Indecent Exposure

Under Florida law, §800.3 “exposure of sexual organs,” it is illegal to expose one’s sexual parts in public or in the private dwelling or habitat of another individual, in a way that is intentionally meant to be vulgar or sexual. It is also illegal to be naked in public in an area where it is not intended to be or expected to be in that state, such as a changing room or in a locker room.

A conviction of indecent exposure is classified as a first degree misdemeanor, and could entail imprisonment for up to one year.

What are the defenses for this charge?

It is not enough for the prosecuting side to claim that there was nudity or some type of exposure involved. For example, being charged with sunbathing on a public beach area, where families are present, does not constitute indecent exposure (although, this does not discount any other possible legal violations that may have been committed based on the circumstances).

Also, another individual or party must have taken offense to the act if it had taken place in a private dwelling. If the act occurred in a public venue, there is no need for another party to be offended and charges can still be made. The only exception to this would be a mother who is breastfeeding her child.
