Something as innocuous as nude sunbathing or public urination may result in a criminal conviction labeling you a sex offender for life. California criminal law provides that any person who willfully and lewdly, exposes his genitalia in any public place, or in any place where other persons are present to be offended or annoyed; or, procures, counsels, or assists any other person in exposing themselves, may be in violation of CA indecent exposure laws. Indecent exposure is usually a misdemeanor offense but may be charged as a felony in certain circumstances. Although a misdemeanor, an indecent exposure conviction may result in mandatory lifetime sex offender registration.
If you are facing indecent exposure charges, consult Orange County sex crimes lawyer Jennifer Le immediately. Her legal practice is devoted exclusively to criminal defense, and attorney Le is able to provide knowledgeable and aggressive legal counsel to those facing any type of sex crime charge, including indecent exposure. Jennifer Le has experience as a former prosecutor as well, giving her a thorough understanding of both sides of the criminal process and thus better enabling her to defend her clients.
In some cases, indecent exposure may also qualify as sexual assault, if physical contact is made. If a minor is involved, the charges and penalties will likely be greater. Additionally, if an individual were to enter another place of living and expose himself, this would result in enhanced penalties.
Breast feeding in public is not considered indecent exposure, and adult entertainment businesses or sexually oriented businesses are also excluded, where the employees are required to be partially or wholly nude.
