There are two key details to the A.R.S §13-1402 statute that deserve careful observation. In order for a person to be convicted of Indecent Exposure, it must be proven that he or she was “reckless” in regard to “offending” the witness. For example, if a male walks into a public restroom and sees the genitals of another man using a urinal, this does not give the person the right to be offended. It is perfectly reasonable to expect to witness nudity such as this in a men’s public restroom.
If you have been charged with Indecent Exposure, it is crucial that you contact a qualified attorney as soon as possible. This type of professional can help determine whether or not you actually committed the crime and if you did, a lawyer can help present mitigating reasons for having the charges dismissed or lowered.
