Indecent Exposure in Indiana

What Is Public Lewdness in Indiana?

Public lewdness is a criminal charge in Indiana related to the exposure of one's self in a public place in a lewd or indecent manner. It is a Class A misdemeanor, and if convicted, you could face a jail sentence of up to one year.

The state of Indiana takes indecent exposure very seriously. Not only is it a crime to expose yourself in public, but it is also a crime to solicit or command another person to expose themselves in public. The laws specifically state that if you solicit or request that someone else expose themselves, you have also committed a crime.

Penalties for Indecent Exposure in Indiana

The penalties for such conduct can range from a Class B misdemeanor to a Level 6 felony, depending on the severity of the exposure and other circumstances involved, such as the age of the victims. Class B misdemeanors usually carry up to 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Level 6 felonies can result in up to two and a half years in jail and up to $10,000 in fines. The severity of the penalties justifies the state's endeavors to keep the public safe and maintain appropriate levels of decency in a civilized society.
