Indecent Exposure

Indecent exposure is when a person intentionally exposes their “private parts” (genitalia) in a public place or where people will see in a lewd manner. A person exposes themselves in a “lewd” manner if “When the defendant exposed (himself/herself), (he/she) acted lewdly by intending to direct public attention to (his/her) genitals for the purpose of sexually arousing or gratifying (himself/herself) or another person, or sexually offending another person.

Indecent Exposure
