Charged With Indecent Exposure? Charles L. Waechter Can Help.
Indecent exposure involves exposing one’s private parts, including genitals, breasts or buttocks in a public place where others are present and witness the act. A seemingly harmless prank of mooning a friend or the sudden decision to urinate behind a building can lead to an arrest for indecent exposure.
Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor carrying a sentence of three years in a state prison and/or a fine up to $1,000. However, if the alleged act was in the presence of young children, you may be required to register as a sex offender — a stigma that is impossible to escape. Regardless of the severity, you will have a permanent criminal record that will impact your educational and career pursuits.
Before you talk to police officers or prosecutors or consider pleading guilty, contact the Law Offices of Charles L. Waechter. I review all evidence against you in building a strong defense. Proactive steps must be taken that involve psychological and clinical evaluations.
You may have not meant any harm by the act. However, prosecutors will still pursue a conviction and the maximum penalties associated with it. You need me to help even the odds you face.
