Indecent Exposure & Obscene Sexual Display Penalties

In Virginia, indecent exposure is defined as intentionally committing an obscene display or exposure of your body or intimate parts in public or a setting where other people are present. It may also include performing sexual intercourse in a public setting or where someone might witness. Indecent exposure is a Class 1 misdemeanor that is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of 12 months and a fine of up to $2,500.

Obscene sexual display is similar to indecent exposure; however, it includes actual or explicitly simulated acts of masturbation in a public setting or places where other individuals are present. It is also considered a Class 1 misdemeanor.
