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.
