Denver Public Indecency Attorney – Sex in Public is Dangerous

According to the news, a firefighter exposed himself to a woman in a parking lot. Apparently, the woman reported to police that the man exposed himself and performed a sex act on himself while he was parked in his car next to her. The man left the parking lot, but the woman was able to get his license plate number. The firefighter reported that he thought he knew the woman who was parked next to him, and that he was joking around because he thought he knew her. In Denver, the man would likely face charges of Public Indecency, C.R.S. 18-7-301. He could also face Indecent Exposure charges, for performing a sexual act on himself in front of the woman.
