What Qualifies as Indecent Exposure in Texas?
According to Texas Penal Code Sec. 21.08, an individual is guilty of indecent exposure when they intentionally reveal their anus or any portion of their genitals with the aim of inciting or satisfying the sexual appetite of any person. This exposure must be done recklessly, disregarding whether another person present might be offended or alarmed by the actions.
Specific behaviors that could be considered indecent exposure under Texas law include urinating in public, streaking, or performing sexual acts in public. However, context matters. For example, a person urinating in a public restroom would not typically be charged with indecent exposure, but if they were to do so in a park or on a sidewalk, they could potentially face charges.
In Texas, indecent exposure is generally considered a Class B misdemeanor. If convicted, the penalties can include up to 180 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,000.
However, the penalties can be enhanced:
- If the accused has been convicted of a sex crime in the past, they can be charged with a Class A misdemeanor.
- If the accused has been convicted of two or more sexual offenses, the charges are enhanced to a state jail felony.
