San Diego Indecent Exposure Charges

Understanding the Penalties for PC 314

Indecent exposure is prohibited in our state and is considered an illegal form of sexual behavior. It is categorized as a sex crime and a first time offense is usually charged as a misdemeanor. Sentencing can be up to one year in jail and perhaps a probationary period. An attempt can be made for first time offenders with no prior record to reduce their conviction to community service hours. A second offense is a felony and a longer sentence.

If you or a loved one has been accused or charged with indecent exposure, contact a San Diego sex crimes attorney at The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC for help.
