The common law offence of ‘public indecency’ makes it an offence to engage in ‘indecent conduct’ in a public place or as to be seen from a public place.
Indecent exposure refers to the act of purposefully displaying or revealing one’s genitals or engaging in sexual intercourse in public view. It is an offence that can be carried out by either men or women.
As it is a common law offence, the High Court can pass sentences of up to life imprisonment for acts of public indecency.
If you have been accused of public indecency, our experienced indecent exposure solicitors at Neil Kilcoyne can help you.
We start the case by examining CCTV, camera, or mobile phone footage and this will prove extremely helpful for us as evidence. It will support your indecent exposure defence and may go towards clearing your name.
If you are sentenced for an indecent exposure charge, you are more likely to be fined or served with a community order than to be taken into custody if found guilty. However, you could be required to sign the sex offender’s register.
Getting in touch with our experienced solicitors should be your priority as your reputation may be damaged, and you could struggle to find employment afterwards.
