Overview of CA Indecent Exposure Laws
As mentioned above, the prosecution must prove that the defendant willfully
exposed his or her private parts. Furthermore, the defendant must have
intended to act for a lewd or obscene purpose – whether to direct
attention to his or her genitals or to achieve sexual arousal or gratification
– in a public area.
A first offense for indecent exposure may result in a misdemeanor, which
is punishable by a maximum county jail sentence of six months and one
year, as well as a fine of up to $1,000. A second-time or subsequent conviction
for indecent exposure is considered a felony, punishable by 16 months,
two or three years in county jail, a fine of up to $10,000, and registration
with the state sex offender registry.
