Indecent Exposure Defense Attorneys in Baltimore
Serving Clients Throughout Maryland
A silly action, such as mooning someone at a sporting event or urinating in an alley after drinking, can result in an overblown criminal charge for indecent exposure. In Maryland, indecent exposure is defined as exposing one’s genitals or other private parts in a public place where others are present and may witness the act. Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 3 years in state prison and a fine of up to $1000.
Certain aggravating circumstances, such as the presence of young children, can result in far more serious consequences, including the requirement to register as a sex offender. Any conviction will result in a permanent criminal record that could affect your prospects for future employment and housing.
Indecent exposure is the type of crime that covers a wide range of alleged criminal activity. For example, a person charged with purposely exposing his or her genitals to another in a private or public setting could be treated as a sex offender and be punished in a similar fashion as other mainstream sex offenders.
