Indecent Exposure Charge in Denver: Woman Ticketed for Public Nudity

Posted by Kyle B. Sawyer | Jun 24, 2013 | 0 Comments

A nineteen year-old woman was ticketed for public nudity / public indecency last week in Nebraska. After months of mockery from her classmates about her career choices (she has a dream to be in the adult entertainment industry), she decided to pose nearly nude on her school's football field. In most circumstances, the girl would be given indecent exposure charges.

What Qualifies as an Indecent Exposure Charge in Denver (CRS 18-7-302)?

An indecent exposure charge in Denver occurs when:

  • Someone reveals their genitals (accidentally or intentionally) to shock, alarm, or create sexual arousal in other people.

Because this woman had a personal vendetta to shock her schoolmates, she normally would be arrested for Indecent Exposure (CRS 18-7-302)  in Jefferson, Douglas and Adams County. In her case, however, she was only ticketed for public nudity and trespassing. This is most likely because she was on school property. She should count herself very lucky. Indecent exposure sentencing is harsh, as it qualifies as a sex offense.  This could have greatly affected her life and future plans.

What is the Sentence for an Indecent Exposure Charge in Denver, Littleton and Aurora?

Indecent exposure is a Class 1 Misdemeanor. The sentence is:

If you have previous indecent exposure charges on your record, however, you will face a Class 6 Felony:

Registration as a sex offender requires adherence to the strict, unfair rules of the Sex Offender Management Board (SOMB) and a lifetime of being labeled as a sex offender. The government controls where a sex offender works, lives, and what they think about.  Because the law is very subjective regarding indecent exposure vs. public nudity and public indecency, you need an experienced sex crimes lawyer in Denver to help you fight for your freedom.
