Indecent Exposure

By Collin County Criminal Defense Lawyer Jeremy Rosenthal

(972) 369-0577

There are very few allegations more humiliating than indecent exposure.

Texas Penal Code 21.08 governs Indecent Exposure and that statute holds, “A person commits an offense if he exposes his anus or any part of his genitals with intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person, and he is reckless about whether another is present who will be offended or alarmed by his act.”

Though indecent exposure is a relatively minor charge, a class b misdemeanor, it can have stigmatizing long-term effects.  Additionally, multiple indecent exposure convictions can result in sex offender registration under Chapter 62 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure.  As such — any indecent exposure charge is an extremely serious one!

Indecent exposure allegations are highly fact and evidence intensive.  Furthermore these cases are highly subjective.  Fighting these charges requires an aggressive attorney that is an experienced trial lawyer and is extremely thorough with the facts.
