Indecent Exposure Penalties in Florida
In Florida, indecent exposure is considered a misdemeanor offense punishable by up to 12 months in county jail or a fine up to $1,000, possibly both. The most serious repercussion of exposing sexual organs is that the accused will need to register as a sex offender. Combine that with a criminal record and your livelihood could suffer severe consequences such as employment, housing, financial and education opportunities.
Elements of the Crime
If you are accused of indecent exposure the following must be proved:
- Sexual organs were exposed by accused
- Accused was in a public place, on the private premises of another or near the private property of another as to be seen from those private locations
