Indecent exposure usually involves the public display of sexual organs in a vulgar manner. In some cases, an individual may face an indecent exposure charge from an activity done in a private place if it is seen from outside that private area. Florida law includes heavy fines and severe criminal penalties, including potential mandatory/minimum sentences of up to 25 years and maximum potential sentences of up to LIFE. Mr. Petruzzi has represented numerous individuals charged with, or under investigation for, indecent exposure offenses by state authorities. His experience and knowledge serve as an invaluable asset to his clients.
Florida indecent exposure offenses are investigated and prosecuted by various state and local law enforcement agencies. Some common Florida statutes criminalizing indecent exposure include:
800.03 Exposure of sexual organs:
It is unlawful to expose or exhibit one’s sexual organs in public or on the private premises of another, or so near thereto as to be seen from such private premises, in a vulgar or indecent manner, or to be naked in public except in any place provided or set apart for that purpose. Violation of this section is a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. A mother’s breastfeeding of her baby does not under any circumstance violate this section.
