Florida Indecent Exposure Laws
In Florida, indecent exposure is legally defined as the exposing of sexual organs in a public place or while in public view. Depending on the case, indecent exposure can lead to misdemeanor charges or, in the most serious situations, felony allegations.
- Misdemeanor - In most cases, indecent exposure is prosecuted as a misdemeanor punishable by large fines, up to 1-year imprisonment, or both.
- Felony- In cases involving exposure to minors under the age of 16, charges may be elevated to lewd and lascivious exhibition, a felony crime. This charge is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
Indecent exposure can encompass a wide range of actions, from urinating in an alleyway to changing out of a bathing suit in a public place to the act of “flashing.” As with any criminal charges, the unique facts and circumstances of a case will always come into question when determining if a person should be convicted and penalized for indecent exposure.
Our Fort Lauderdale indecent exposure attorneys can help clients challenge the validity of the charges against them by focusing on:
- A lack of unlawful intent
- The nature and act of exposure
- The location of the alleged act
Charges and situations involving indecent exposure can vary drastically. This is why it becomes crucial to have your case personally reviewed by an attorney who can help you understand your situation and available options.
