Is Urinating in Public a Sex Offender Crime?

Urinating in public is truly an unacceptable behavior, period. Sometimes, however, the call of nature is too strong and you don’t have any choice but to let it go.

Is Urinating in Public a Sex Offender Crime?

Here in Michigan, urinating in public can be classified as an indecent or obscene conduct crime. There are actually a few charges you can incur if you are caught with the disorderly conduct of urinating in public, with the most serious of them being indecent exposure.

Indecent Exposure Charges

According to Michigan Penal Code 750.335a(1), a person must not knowingly make any open or indecent exposure of his or her person or of the person of another.

Michigan indecent exposure charges may not sound so serious as other sex related offenses, but it can lead to jail time, fines, and probation. Also, if there is strong evidence against you, sex offender registration may be required on the Michigan Sex Offender Registry.

If the person who reported you for an indecent exposure crime has a clear record of you doing it publicly, i.e. public urination, this can certainly aggravate the charge. Learn more about aggravated indecent exposure here.
