HB 1334: Public Indecency And Indecent Exposure

Criminal Justice
Bill Number: HB 1334
Year: 2010
ACLU Position: Active Support
Sponsors: Rep. King; Sen. Steadman

Description:
Under current law, a public act of masturbation is a crime under the public indecency statute and is a class 1 petty offense. The bill moves the offense to the crime of indecent exposure, a class 1 misdemeanor. The bill expands the definition of the crime of public indecency, which is a class 1 petty offense, to include knowingly exposing one's genitals in a way that is likely to cause affront or alarm to another person. If a person has been previously convicted of that same act of public indecency, the bill raises the penalty from a class 1 petty offense to a class 1 misdemeanor. The bill also expands the definition of the crime of indecent exposure to include exposing one's genitals in public with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desire of any person. The bill adds a subsequent conviction of one provision of the crime of public indecency to the definition of "unlawful sexual behavior" for purposes of the sex offender registration statutes.
