Indecent Exposure (A.R.S. §13-1402) occurs when someone exposes his or her genitals or anus. In addition, if a female exposes the nipple or the areola of her breast in public (not including during the act of breastfeeding), it can be considered Indecent Exposure.
The act must include another person who witnesses the act and the defendant must have acted recklessly in order to offend the witness. These two points are critical to making these charges stick. Watch the video below to learn about defenses that attorneys at DM Cantor have used.
If you’ve been accused of Indecent Exposure, you need to contact an attorney right away. Many times, the two points mentioned above are missing. However, if you were reckless and/or a child aged 14 or under was a witness to the event, you could be found guilty. If a child 14 and under witnessed the act, you could be facing felony charges and a prison sentence of up to two years. Read about some of our Indecent Exposure case victories on our website.
