Detroit Indecent Exposure
Publically exposing the genitals, buttocks, or (if female) breasts is highly illegal in any context, and can lead to extremely serious criminal punishment. While many indecent exposure cases involve misguided, but not intentionally malicious, actions, the penalties for anyone conviction can be very serious, regardless of whether or not the alleged offender knew anyone was around to witness the offense, or whether the exposure was meant as a joke.
