Indecent Exposure Crimes

Although indecent exposure is generally considered to be one of the less serious sex offenses that a person can be charged with, the effects of indecent exposure charges — or, worse yet, a conviction on these charges — can have devastating impacts to a person's social and professional lives, as those convicted of indecent exposure will be required to register as a Colorado sex offender. According to Colorado law (C.R.S. 18-7-302), indecent exposure (which may also be referred to as public lewdness, public indecency or sexual misconduct) is defined as the act of intentionally:

  • Exposing one's genitals so that they may be viewed by another person
  • Trying to upset or alarm another person through the exposure of one's genitals
  • Trying to obtain some type of sexual gratification through the exposure of one's genitals

According to this definition, any of the following acts could result in indecent exposure charges being filed against a person:

  • Nude sunbathing in a public place or within view of others
  • Nude photography in a public place
  • Streaking at a sporting event
  • Accidentally exposing oneself due to a clothing malfunction
  • Public urination

If an individual has no or one prior indecent exposure conviction, the indecent exposure charge will be filed as a class 1 misdemeanor offense, which can be punishable by up to 18 months in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. If, however, a person has two or more indecent exposure convictions (even if these convictions occurred in other states), then the indecent exposure charges will likely be filed as a class 6 felony, which can be punishable by up to two years in prison and up to $100,000 in fines.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
