Indecent Exposure

Legal Defense for Indecent Exposure Cases in Lansing & Metro Detroit & surrounding areas

MCL Sec. 750.335a or Sec. 26-141, better known in East Lansing & Metro Detroit as urinating in public or UIP, states that an individual shall not knowingly produce any open or indecent exposure of his or her person or of the person of another. Any individual who violates this section is guilty of a criminal offense. This person is guilty of a misdemeanor which can be punishable by imprisonment up to one year, or a series of fines up to $1,000. Based on the judge's decision, an individual may face a combination of fines, probation and imprisonment. If the individual was fondling his or her genitals, buttocks or even female breasts, violating subsection (1) of Sec. 26-141, the person is guilty of a misdemeanor which is punishable by imprisonment of up to two years or a fine up to $2,000. Depending on the judge's decision, the offender may be faced with fines, probation and imprisonment.

With East Lansing & Metro Detroit being the home of Michigan State University, we find college students consuming alcohol, especially at tailgate on football Saturdays. Exposing one’s genitals, female breast or buttock in a public place, or urinating in public, are acts that can get an individual charged with indecent exposure in Michigan. A variety of conduct can qualify as indecent exposure: flashing, which is typical for individuals looking for sexual fulfillment; urinating in the corner of a building or on bushes, which tends to happen at tailgate due to a shortage of bathrooms; or even swimming naked alone in view of individuals who can see them.

After being charged with indecent exposure, an individual can be facing a criminal record haunting his or her career and personal opportunities. Even further, an individual who has been convicted of indecent exposure prior would additionally have to register on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.
