Dallas Indecent Exposure Attorney

In order to be charged with  indecent exposure, it must be alleged that you “exposed yourself” to another person.  However, that fact, alone, is not sufficient to sustain a prosecution for indecent exposure.  Two other elements must also be proved by the state, beyond a reasonable doubt.  First, the statute further requires that you intended to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person (i.e., either yourself, or someone else).  Additionally, it must be proved at trial that you were reckless as to whether someone else might have been alarmed or offended by your conduct.  If any of these elements is missing, a prosecution for indecent exposure cannot be sustained.  Under Texas law, indecent exposure is a Class B misdemeanor, which carries a penalty range of up to 180 days in jail, and up to a $2000 fine.  Additionally, if you’re convicted a second time of this charge, you will be required to register as a sex offender.
