Indecent Exposure Laws in Southfield, Michigan
The legislation concerning indecent exposure in Southfield is contained in Section 750.335a of the Michigan Penal Code. This states that a person shall not knowingly make any open or indecent exposure of his or her person, or of the person of another. The legislation specifically states that a mother breastfeeding a child or expressing breast milk does not qualify as open or indecent exposure for the purposes of this legislation.
While any open or indecent exposure can lead to criminal conviction, there are enhanced penalties for those who are accused of fondling their genitals, pubic area, buttocks, or if female, breasts. These actions can double or significantly increase the penalties included in a sentence if convicted.
