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

In order to get an Indecent Exposure charge dropped in Tarrant County, 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 Tarrant County.

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.
