What is 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.
