Houston Indecent Exposure Defense Attorneys

Indecent exposure, as defined by the state of Texas, occurs when a person “exposes his anus or any part of his genitals with intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of another person, and he is reckless about whether another is present who will be offended or alarmed by his act.” The state of Texas treats this as a serious crime, and if convicted, the perpetrator will be considered a sex offender under Texas law. This is a serious and potentially life-altering accusation.

If you or someone you know has been accused of indecent exposure, you should obtain legal representation to ensure that your rights and reputation are protected. Contact the Houston indecent exposure lawyers of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C., at 713-523-0404 today to discuss your case with an experienced attorney who can help you maintain your good name.

Penalties for Indecent Exposure

A person convicted of indecent exposure is guilty of a class B misdemeanor, and faces the following penalties:

  • Enrollment in counseling for sex offenders
  • A fine of up to $2000
  • Imprisonment for up to 6 months
  • Registration as a sex offender

Additionally, if a child was present, the case is treated as a third degree felony. The penalties for a conviction under these circumstances are potentially much severer.
