Naperville Public Indecency Defense Attorney

Being charged with public indecency can carry consequences far more serious than embarrassment. In Illinois, public indecency is classified as a sex offense, which means you ultimately could be subject to sex offender registration — one of the most serious consequences that you can face for any crime.

At the Law Office of Philip R. Nathe, we have a solid understanding of how to mount an effective defense against public indecency charges. As a defense lawyer and former assistant state's attorney for DuPage County with more than 30 years of experience, Mr. Nathe will work hard to help you obtain the best possible outcome of your case. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Protecting You From Devastating Consequences

In Illinois, it is illegal to expose yourself in public with sexual intent. Examples of public indecency include:

  • Masturbation in a public place
  • Engaging in a sex act with another person in a public place
  • Exposing yourself to another person with sexual intent

A public place could be anyplace where the act could reasonably be expected to be viewed by others. The seriousness of the charges can depend on a number of factors, including the age of the person or persons who saw you.

No one would want a conviction for public indecency on his or her record. The two main defense approaches would be to attack the factual basis of the prosecution or to negotiate with the prosecution. Either way, the main goal is always to keep a conviction from appearing on your record, if that is possible.
