Best Criminal Defense Attorney in Denver - Indecent Exposure Charges, C.R.S. 18-7-302

Indecent-Exposure-Attorney.jpgIndecent Exposure in Jefferson County Can Happen by Accident

In our blogs, we often talk about crimes where the actor, also known as the accused or defendant, must knowingly do something to qualify as a crime. "Knowingly" is a key element in many crimes. That is because people in Jefferson County and Arvada / Wheat Ridge do not want to punish someone for mistakenly doing something. This is true even in cases where we think someone should have known better. But even when knowing is an element of a crime, such as with Indecent Exposure, Lakewood police will often overlook that element in order to satisfy an out of control alleged victim. Lakewood Police fear criticism from a real or imagined victim. Read the Difference Between Public Indecency and Indecent Exposure.

Indecent Exposure by Wardrobe Malfunction May Lead to More Than Embarrassment in Arapahoe County

There are thousands of ways in which a person might unintentionally expose himself or herself. If you don't believe me, you should set your search engine filter to strict, then search for the words wardrobe malfunction or accidental exposure. In real life these embarrassing moments can actually turn into criminal charges if someone calls the Aurora police to investigate the glimpse of a naked neighbor through an uncovered window. An unlatched dressing room door at the Aurora Mall, a broken toilet stall in Byers, or a window shade that was not completely closed in Greenwood Village, can lead to charges of Indecent Exposure in Arapahoe County. It is not only embarrassing to be accidentally seen, but your level of embarrassment will rise dramatically if you are accused of and convicted of Indecent Exposure leading to Sex Offender Registration.

Adams County Sheriff Shows Up Accusing Indecent Exposure? What to do

Making a statement to law enforcement is never a good idea when you are the person they suspect of a sex crime. This is especially true in Indecent Exposure cases. By attempting to explain your mistake, it is almost certain you will be cited or arrested in Adams County. So never think you can talk your way out of allegations of Indecent Exposure. Instead, we recommend you not make any statement. By saying nothing, nothing can be used against you in court and your silence will not be used as evidence that you committed a crime.
