Have you been charged with Indecent Exposure in Colorado? Contact a lawyer to defend you.
If you have been charged with Indecent Exposure in Denver, El Paso, or Douglas County, you need to understand the consequences you will face if you are convicted. It is wise to be informed before you head into court. Don't hesitate to contact one of our experienced criminal defense attorneys who will discuss the details of your situation and how to fight the allegations against you in court. One of our criminal lawyers, Nikea Bland, recently was a defense attorney for a man who was charged with Indecent Exposure. In this blog, we'll discuss the crime and how we go about defending people generally, and how Nikea used her experience to defend an innocent man.

What is Indecent Exposure?

Indecent Exposure – C.R.S. 18-7-302, is charged whenever a person exposes their genitals to another person, for the purpose of sexual arousal or desire. To be more specific, you will be charged if you:

  1. Knowingly expose your genitals in a way which is likely to cause alarm or affront to another person, and with the intent to “arouse or satisfy the sexual desire of any person,” or
  2. Knowingly masturbate in a way in which your act is exposed to another person, when it is likely they will feel alarmed or affronted.

In court, we examine these offense elements and whether the DA will be able to meet their burden of proof.

Charged with Indecent Exposure for Streaking

As I mentioned above, one of our experienced criminal defense attorneys, Nikea Bland, recently defended a man in court who was charged with Indecent Exposure. He had streaked across a soccer field after a bet with his friends. Nikea was able to get the sexual offense charges changed, because he wasn't running naked through the field for a sexual purpose – he was doing it as the result of a bet, to be funny. This is why it is wise to work with an attorney who understands the criminal justice system in Arapahoe,  Adams, or Jefferson County. Our criminal defense lawyers know how District Attorneys and judges think – we know what they're looking for and are able to work out favorable plea deals or get cases dismissed altogether. If Nikea's client hadn't hired an attorney, he likely would have plead guilty to avoid jail time. And, even though Indecent Exposure is a misdemeanor crime (for a first time offense), it is a sex offense in Saguache County and across Colorado. If you are convicted of this crime, you will be required to register as a sex offender and undergo treatment. Don't stand alone in court – protect your future by contacting a skilled criminal defense lawyer.
