According to the California Penal Code 314, any person who willfully and lewdly exposes his genitals or private parts in public or in a place where another person (s) can be offended commits the offense of indecent exposure and is punishable by law. The act also makes it illegal for any person to exhibit himself or hire or assist someone to exhibit himself in public that is offensive or indecent. The elements of the crime in case of indecent exposure is, i) the defendant willfully and lewdly exposed his genitals or private parts. ii) The defendant was in public at that time or given person/s that were offended by the act. To establish the offense against a person, the district attorney’s office must prove both elements of the crime. A man standing on a street and showing his genitals to the women passing by for sexual gratification, a woman baring her breasts in a church to offend people, or boyfriend taking off his clothes in a pool to sexually gratify his girlfriend are some of the common behaviors of indecent exposures.
