PUBLIC INDECENCY

Public indecency can be a serious charge, requiring the services of an esteemed Colorado criminal lawyer.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with public indecency if the individual performs any of the following acts in a public place or in a location where the conduct may reasonably be expected to be viewed by members of the public:

  • An act of sexual intercourse;
  • A lewd exposure of an intimate part of the body, not including the genitals, with intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desire of any person;
  • A lewd fondling or caress of the body of another person;
  • A knowing exposure of the genitals to the view of a person where such conduct is likely to cause affront or alarm to the other person.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, public indecency can be a class 1 misdemeanor or a class 1 petty offense.
