work to protect your rights and interests.
Defining Public Indecency
What Georgia law calls public indecency is referred to as indecent exposure
in some other states. This is a type of sex crime that involves exposing
oneself in public or performing lewd acts in a public place. It is a misdemeanor
offense and may be considered a "lesser" sex offense, but a
conviction may still result in imprisonment in county jail for up to 12
months if the defendant is convicted, not to mention the burden of living
with the social stigma attached with a conviction of this kind on one's
record. A third or subsequent offense of this kind may also be charged
as a felony punishable by up to 5 years in state prison. Sex offender
registration is another penalty that may be associated with a conviction
for indecent exposure.
