In Florida, indecent exposure is considered a misdemeanor offense which is punishable by up to 1 year in county jail, a fine of up to $1,000, or possibly both. The most serious consequence coming of an individual exposing their sexual organs is the requirement to register as a sex offender. While some may consider indecent exposure a minor offense, it can still have severely negative ramifications that could tarnish your reputation and possibly ruin your livelihood, employment, financial, and education opportunities.
