A person commits the offense of indecent exposure if he or she:
- Exposes his anus or any part of his genitals;
- With intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person;
- Or he or she is reckless about whether another is present who will be offended or alarmed by his act.
An essential aspect of indecent exposure is the lack of physical contact. If an individual makes some sort of physical contact with his or her genitals, then sexual assault or assault charges may be filed instead. Additionally, it is essential to note that to submit an indecent exposure charge, intent to arouse or gratify sexual desire must be present. Therefore, it is erroneous to charge an individual defecating in public with indecent exposure as people who are urinating or defecating in public typically do not do so with the intent to sexually arouse another person. Also, the State should not charge folks who are just wandering nude without the purpose of sexual gratification with this particular crime. Nudists may be violating a municipal ordinance.
If the State has charged you or a loved with indecent exposure, you must enlist the help of an aggressive attorney. Austin Criminal Defense Attorney Jason Trumpler has 20-years of experience defending criminal cases. Contact our office today at 512-457-5200.
