Defenses to a Exposure of Sexual Organs Charge

In addition to factual defenses that would be raised at trial to show reasonable doubt as to the crime alleged, some common defenses to a Exposure of Sexual Organs charge in Florida include:

You were merely naked
Florida law is clear that proof of mere nudity or exposure is not sufficient to sustain a conviction. Rather, it must be shown that the exposure was vulgar, indecent, lewd, or lascivious. Merely being naked or exposed in public will not suffice in Florida unless it is of a vulgar, indecent, lewd, or lascivious manner.
 
Other factors need to be present in order for the State to be able to prove you committed the crime of Exposure of Sexual Organs. Issues such as your own statements, your actions, the actions of those who witnessed it, and the manner in which the exposure occurred will need to be closely examined to determine if the charge of Exposure of Sexual Organs was committed.

You are a mother who was breastfeeding her baby in public
