Indecent Exposure Charges in Arizona
Under the law, a person commits indecent exposure if a man or woman exposes his or her genitals or anus or if a woman exposes the areola or nipple to another person. Certain other conditions apply. Public exposure that is viewed as reckless or intentionally provocative can result in an indecent exposure charge. Even a seemingly harmless prank such as mooning another person or urinating in public can lead to a indecent exposure charge in Phoeniz.
Our attorneys will carefully examine the facts of your case to see if it indeed meets the requirements of the law regarding indecent exposure. Based on this analysis, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge or get it reduced to a lesser charge.

With proper legal representation, it is often possible to persuade a prosecutor to reduce a misdemeanor indecent exposure charge to charge of a non-sexual nature, such as disorderly conduct.
