The Details of Public Indecency

Public indecency can refer to a number of acts. The deed could be as simple as sunbathing nude or stepping into an alley behind a nightclub to relieve yourself. On the other hand, it could reach to such extremes as participating in sexual intercourse in a “public” place, from a park to a car to a hotel room with the window shades accidentally left undrawn.


Any of these mistakes could land you in front of a judge, and public lewdness is taken very seriously in a court of law. In Texas, according to the state’s Penal Code Chapter 43, public indecency can include anything from obscenity to prostitution. You could face jail time, fines, probation, or community service. In addition, you may be required to register as a sex offender, which affects where you can own a home and how you spend time with your children. Therefore, you need an experienced legal team at your side to prove that even in the case of public indecency, your mistake was lacking intent and was not sexual in nature.


Sex crime charges do not go away on their own. That means charges of public indecency can follow accused persons for the rest of their lives. If you are looking at public indecency charges, you should seek expert legal advice as soon as you can to guarantee a suitable defense.
