Even a Non-Sexual Indecent Exposure Incident Can Result in Sex Offender Registration
Indecent exposure in Michigan is prosecuted with little regard to how it will impact the lives of those convicted. An individual can be convicted of indecent exposure even if the exposure occurs for a non-sexual reason (i.e., urinating in public). Indecent exposure is a misdemeanor offense; however, a second conviction (even decades later) may result in an allegation of sexual delinquency. If you are a repeat offender, you can also be charged with being a Sexually Delinquent Person. This carries a penalty of one day to life in prison.
Classification as sexually delinquent increases the offense to a felony that carries a maximum sentence of life imprisonment as well as registration on the sex offender registry. Because of such a charge’s severity, it is crucial to fight off any indecent exposure charge aggressively. Our Farmington Hills team of sex crime attorneys is prepared to help you do that.
Depending on your criminal charge’s circumstances, we can look at all factors to either work toward a dismissal or mitigate consequences through negotiation.
