Indecent exposure is a class 1 misdemeanor.
(Deleted by amendment, L. 2002, p. 1587, §21, effective July 1, 2002.)
Indecent exposure is a class 6 felony if the violation is committed subsequent to two prior convictions of a violation of this section or of a violation of a comparable offense in any other state or in the United States, or of a violation of a comparable municipal ordinance.
For purposes of this section, "masturbation" means the real or simulated touching, rubbing, or otherwise stimulating of a person's own genitals or pubic area for the purpose of sexual gratification or arousal of the person, regardless of whether the genitals or pubic area is exposed or covered.
Indecent exposure is a class one misdemeanor and can be elevated to a class 6 felony if the defendant has two prior convictions for a comparable violation. A person convicted of Indecent exposure will have to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
