Indecent Exposure: California Penal Code 314

Indecent Exposure (CA Penal Code 314 PC) is the California law that makes it illegal to willfully expose your genitals in public, either for sexual gratification or to offend another person.  

A first offense of indecent exposure will most often be a misdemeanor, with penalties of up to one thousand dollars in fines and up to six months in a county jail. A second offense is a felony and can lead to a state prison sentence. If you are convicted of indecent exposure, you must also register as a sex offender.

In order for you to be convicted of indecent exposure, the prosecutor must prove that you willfully exposed your genitals, if you exposed yourself accidentally you did not commit a crime. The prosecutor must also prove that you were in the presence of someone who would have been offended by your "indecent exposure". Lastly the prosecutor must also prove that you purposely exposed yourself for sexual gratification or to sexually offend someone.
