What is Indecent Exposure?

Indecent exposure commonly refers to the act of exposing one's private body parts, such as genitals or buttocks, in a public place or in the presence of others who may be offended or alarmed by such conduct. In Texas, indecent exposure is considered a criminal offense and is covered under Section 21.08 of the Texas Penal Code.

To establish a case of indecent exposure, the prosecution must prove that the defendant intentionally exposed their private parts with the knowledge that it would likely cause offense or alarm to others who were present at the time of the exposure. Law enforcement and the courts take this offense seriously, and those found guilty may face severe consequences.

What are the Penalties for Indecent Exposure in Texas?

Indecent exposure is categorized as a Class B misdemeanor in Texas. If convicted, individuals may face the following penalties:

  • Criminal Record: A conviction for indecent exposure will result in a permanent criminal record, which can have a lasting effect on your personal and professional life.
  • Fines: A Class B misdemeanor may lead to fines of up to $2,000.
  • Jail Time: Offenders may be sentenced to a maximum of 180 days in county jail.
  • Sex Offender Registration: In certain cases, individuals convicted of indecent exposure could be required to register as sex offenders, which can have significant social and legal consequences.

Defenses Against Indecent Exposure Charges

Some potential defenses against indecent exposure charges can include:

  • Lack of Intent: If you did not intend to expose yourself or did so accidentally, this lack of intent can be used as a defense.
  • False Accusations: Sometimes, individuals are wrongly accused of indecent exposure due to mistaken identity or false allegations.
  • Privacy Rights: Depending on the location where the alleged offense occurred, you may have had a reasonable expectation of privacy, which can be used as a defense.
  • Violation of Constitutional Rights: If your Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures had been violated during your arrest or investigation, it could impact the admissibility of evidence in your case.
  • Witness Credibility: Challenging the credibility of witnesses who claim to have been offended or alarmed by the alleged exposure can be an effective defense strategy.
