Penal Code § 314 PC – “Indecent Exposure” Law
California Penal Code section 314 makes it illegal for anyone to willfully expose their genitals to someone else in order to offend the other person or sexually gratify themselves. California’s “indecent exposure” laws are vague and can be applied to a wide array of behavior most people might not consider criminal acts to the extent that they require lifetime sex offender registration.
Here are a few examples of behavior that could bring a criminal charge of indecent exposure:
- A college student ‘streaking’ by running naked through the field during a university football game.
- A female ‘flashing’ her breasts in a crowded bar
- Urinating in public
- Public nudity
Indecent exposure is a serious crime that carries mandatory sex offender registration. We use experienced psychological evaluations to show there is no need to be tracked as a sex-offender. We’ve had great success in helping people charged with this crime.
Often indecent exposure is a deep seated psychological disorder that is difficult for a person to control. Studies have shown that this problem is somewhat like compulsive gambling or other compulsive addiction that can ruin a person’s life. We know and understand these cases. We use the best experts. We keep people out of jail and prevent sex offender registration.
If you’ve been convicted of indecent exposure and want to get off the sex registration list, call us – we can help.
