Question: What are the penalties for indecent exposure in Texas?
If you’ve been charged with indecent exposure, it’s really important to get a lawyer to represent you that understands the charge and understands the ramifications. For indecent exposure, if you’re convicted or placed on deferred one time for that offense, you don’t have to register as a sex offender. Down the road, if you’re ever charged for a second indecent exposure, then you have to register as a sex offender for 10 years. It’s really important to avoid that initial charge.
Indecent exposure can occur when someone exposes their genitalia in public or in a situation where someone is likely to be offended by that. A lot of times, it’s an issue of ID. It’s an issue of whether the person was reckless. It’s a multi-prong case; the definition is pretty complicated for the offense, so it does leave room for a defense. We usually look at the case, after collecting all the evidence, and we make a decision If we can’t fight the case, can we avoid a conviction and get a deferred adjudication? The problem with indecent exposure, again, is that anytime down the road if you get a second charge, you have the potential to register as a sex offender.
