Defense Against Indecent Exposure Charges
The law regarding indecent exposure in Nevada is somewhat vague, but the possible penalties upon conviction are harsh.
While the law does not specifically say which parts of the body are obscene or indecent if exposed, typically people are arrested for indecent exposure for exposing their genitalia. If a woman is not breastfeeding, she may face an indecent exposure charge for exposing her breasts.

Indecent Exposure Often Coupled with Other Charges
In Las Vegas, people accused of indecent exposure often find themselves charged with additional offenses — particularly open or gross lewdness. This charge is generally more serious than indecent exposure, which can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on whether the accused has been convicted previously of indecent exposure.
Being convicted of open or gross lewdness can lead to a lifetime requirement to notify the community of the offense.
Being convicted of indecent exposure for the first time can result in a jail sentence of up to one year. A subsequent conviction can result in a prison sentence of up to four years.
