Los Angeles Indecent Exposure Attorney

Criminal Lawyer for Sexual Related Charges

The act of indecent exposure in the State of California (Penal Code Section 314) can be charged when an individual "Exposes their person, or the private parts thereof, in any public place, or in any place where there are present other persons to be offended or annoyed thereby… is offensive to decency, or is adapted to excite to vicious or lewd thoughts or acts."

As a misdemeanor, this act is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine as well as having to register as a sex offender. Although this act is a misdemeanor, repeat offenses of it are charged as a felony and punishable by up to a year in prison. If an individual has earlier convictions of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child, their first offense of indecent exposure could be bumped up to a felony.

Charged with indecent exposure in Los Angeles?

If you have been charged with indecent exposure contact with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney is imperative in order to take action that could potentially mitigate the charges. Being arrested for indecent exposure has a social stigma attached to it that can harm your reputation and employment. However, there are actions that a skilled criminal defense attorney with Cron, Israels & Stark can take to attempt to have the charges dropped or reduced to a lesser crime that doesn't have the same stigma and ramifications as an indecent exposure conviction.

Part of our investigation will revolve around the exposure; what was exposed, was the exposure an attempt to sexually excite or offend. These are questions that need to be asked to get to the bottom of the charges and decide on a plan of defense. For instance, if there was an exposure, but there was obviously no intent to excite, as in an accidental exposure or exposure for another purpose, an attempt could be made to have the charges dropped or reduced. No charges should be taken lightly. In the case of indecent exposure, fast action on your part to contact our office and get things in motion could save heartache and embarrassment. Call our office today for an appointment.
