Indecent Exposure Laws in MA

Boston Sex Crime Attorney

Under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 272, Section 53, it is illegal for a person to engage in intentional lewd acts of exposure in a public setting. Known as “indecent exposure,” this statute prohibits acts such as public urination, going outside without clothing, exposing one’s genitals in public, public masturbation, and other forms of sexual behavior in an open environment. While many assume this is a relatively minor charge, a conviction of indecent exposure can carry a number of harsh penalties and severely damage a person’s reputation. If you have been charged with any form of indecent exposure, it is vital you contact a skilled Boston criminal defense lawyer from Brad Bailey Law to protect your future and freedom.

Penalties for Indecent Exposure in MA

A person can face a wide range of stiff penalties if convicted of indecent exposure. In order to secure a conviction, the prosecution must be able to prove that a defendant (1) exposed their genitals to one or more persons, (2) did so intentionally, and (3) offended one or more persons. It is important to note that indecent exposure laws do not cover exposing one’s buttocks, breasts, or pubic hair, though this may still be considered a criminal act.

A conviction of indecent exposure can bring the following penalties:

  • A misdemeanor criminal record
  • Up to six months in jail
  • Fines up to $200
  • Probation

In extreme cases, a person convicted of indecent exposure may be required to register as a sex offender with the state of Massachusetts. Sex offender registration can be the most severe consequence, as the negative social connotations that can come with a sex crime conviction can greatly impede a person’s ability to find employment or suitable housing well after they have served their sentence.
