Indecent Exposure To A Child
Indecent exposure to a child usually involves the public display of sexual organs in a vulgar manner with a child who observes the act. In some cases, an individual may face an indecent exposure to a child charge from an activity done in a private place if it is seen from outside that private area by a child.
