How are crimes of indecent exposure prosecuted?
California defines the crime of indecent exposure as willfully exposing
your genitals to somebody else in a public place to achieve sexual gratification.
That being said, the burden of proof rests on the prosecution to prove
that your actions align with this legal statute.
Prosecutors must prove three things in order to convict you:
- That you willfully exposed your genitals
- That you were in the presence of someone who might be offended by that action
- That you exposed your genitals to sexually gratify yourself or sexually
offend someone else
If they are successful, a conviction can result in a misdemeanor charge,
up to six months in jail, up to $1,000 in fines, and mandatory registration
as a sex offender. There is no doubt that you need a legal team who is
capable of opposing the prosecution’s attempts.
