Indecent Exposure in Maryland
Obtain Experienced Legal Representation from a Salisbury Criminal Defense Lawyer
A silly act such as urinating in an alley after consuming alcohol or mooning
someone in public can result in
criminal charges for indecent exposure. In Maryland, indecent exposure is punishable
by lengthy prison sentences and expensive fines, as well as possible registration
as a sex offender.
It is imperative that you have an experienced attorney on your side who
can help you prepare a defense against this type of
sex crime charge. I,
William R. Hall, am committed to protecting your reputation and future. I can develop
a strong defense strategy in order to get your entire case dismissed or
your charges reduced.
Understanding Maryland Laws on Indecent Exposure
In Maryland, indecent exposure involves willfully exposing one’s
genitalia or other private parts in a public place where others are present
and may witness the action. The offender does not need to have any intention
to alarm someone for sexual gratification, so the mere act of exposing
oneself can lead to charges.
If convicted, an offender faces up to a maximum prison sentence of three
years and a fine of up to $1,000. However, aggravating circumstances such
as committing indecent exposure in the presence of young children can
result in more severe consequences, including the requirement to register
as a sex offender.
