Penalties for Indecent Exposure
If you are convicted of indecent exposure, you will face a misdemeanor charge with a one year jail sentence and a $1,000 fine. The jail time and fines are doubled when the individual charged with indecent exposure is also charged of fondling parts of his or her body inappropriately in a public location. If a person is already known to be sexually offensive and has been charged for other crimes of this nature in the past, then the prison sentence can be increased drastically. In some cases, Michigan law allows repeat offenders to be imprisoned for life on an indecent exposure charge.
The Possibility of Sex Offender Registration
If you are charged with indecent exposure and later convicted of the crime, you will need to register your name with the Michigan Sex Offender Registry. Not only is this embarrassing, but it will damage your reputation and harm your future. A defendant may lose his or her job once registered as a sex offender, and it will make it difficult to thrive in social circles with this embarrassing detail out in the public.
