Have you been arrested for indecent exposure? This is a type of sex crime that involves exposing oneself in a public place. Accidental exposure and breastfeeding are typically not considered indecent exposure, but rather willful and intentional exposure. Depending on the case, a defendant may face imprisonment in county jail, fines and probation for a conviction of this kind.
Involving a South Florida criminal defense attorney is a crucial step to take if you have been accused of indecent exposure or any type of criminal offense. Your future and reputation as well as your career may be at risk, and the choices you make now may have a significant impact on your ability to avoid a conviction.
