How do I get an Indecent Exposure charge dropped in Dallas, Texas?

In order to get an Indecent Exposure charge dropped in Dallas, you must convince the state that they cannot prove at least one of the elements of the offense as it is defined in Penal Code §21.08. Our lawyers are experts in the Texas law regarding Indecent Exposure, and we leverage our legal knowledge to mount successful defenses to government prosecutions.

Thoroughly understanding both the Indecent Exposure statute and related case law contributes to effectively defending you in court. As part of our practice, we publish and regularly update a statutory resource guide covering all Texas Penal Code crimes. We analyze the Indecent Exposure statute in detail on the Indecent Exposure offense page. We also maintain our expertise by keeping up with the latest case law affecting Indecent Exposure cases in Dallas.

What does an Indecent Exposure charge really mean?

The general definition of the Texas charge of Indecent Exposure, according to the Texas Penal Code, is as follows:

(a) A person commits an offense if he exposes his anus or any part of his genitals with intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person, and he is reckless about whether another is present who will be offended or alarmed by his act.

A key factor in Indecent Exposure is that the individual exposes a private area to another person with the intent to achieve sexual arousal. If this act occurs within a consensual relationship, or if the other party consents or even requests the exposure, then no crime has been committed.

An experienced attorney can assess the circumstances to determine whether the exposure involved consenting individuals, which could influence the potential legal consequences or lead to the dismissal of charges.

In court, the prosecutor must demonstrate that the person accused had a clear intent with the act and that the exposure was likely to cause distress to observers. Additionally, if the accused touched another person inappropriately during the incident, they could face charges of attempted rape or sexual assault, depending on the specific behaviors involved.

Can a prank lead to an Indecent Exposure charge?

Generally not. Although actions like mooning or flashing genitals might partially fulfill the criteria for Indecent Exposure, prosecutors would likely find it difficult to prove that these acts were performed for sexual gratification.

Dallas Indecent Exposure Attorney Case Defense Strategy

Accordingly, the preparation often starts even before the case begins. As soon as the police initiate an investigation or make an arrest, we can start our own investigation. If you want to win your case, then you should work to obtain exculpatory evidence. The state has police and investigators of their own working for them to gather evidence to support their case.

What You Should Do if You Are Falsely Accused of Indecent Exposure in Dallas

But without skilled legal representation, the case may proceed to trial, where a jury will ultimately make the decision.

If the Dallas District Attorney has charged you with Indecent Exposure, or if you are under investigation for the offense by the police, then you should book an appointment or call us as soon as possible to speak with one of our Dallas Indecent Exposure attorneys.

How can you modify your Dallas bond conditions after an Indecent Exposure arrest?

Start by consulting with your Dallas Indecent Exposure attorney. Work closely with your attorney to build a compelling case for the requested modifications.

Your attorney will file either a motion or a writ of habeas corpus requesting a modification of your bond conditions. The motion or writ outlines the specific changes you are seeking and the reasons for the requested modification.

The judge will ultimately decide whether to approve the requested modifications. They will consider factors such as the nature of the charges, your criminal history, the risk to public safety, and other relevant circumstances. Keep in mind that the judge will base the decision on a careful evaluation of the facts and circumstances of your case.

What happens at a Dallas arraignment?

At your arraignment, a Dallas judge will hear your plea of not guilty. In Dallas, you may not have an attorney at your initial arraignment. However, the court will not hear a guilty plea prior to your being represented by counsel. In addition, the court may also set bail and bond conditions if you have not already received them.

If the police have arrested you for Indecent Exposure, then Texas Code of Criminal Procedure §17.40 requires Dallas judges to “impose any reasonable condition of bond related to the safety of a victim of the alleged offense or to the safety of the community” to secure your attendance at trial. If the state alleges that you violated those bond conditions, then the Dallas Sheriff’s Office can immediately return you to custody. Accordingly, judges have very broad power in determining bail conditions and bond amounts.
