Public Lewdness and Indecent Exposure in Wisconsin

Question: What are indecent exposure and public lewdness under Wisconsin law?

Answer: So in Wisconsin we have what is termed lewd and lascivious behavior. It is a misdemeanor, a Class A misdemeanor, which carries up to 9 months in jail and a $10,000 fine, up to a year of probation per count is also a possibility. Really the definition for indecent exposure or public lewdness is lewd and lascivious behavior that includes a person who commits an indecent act of sexual gratification with another with the knowledge that they’re in the presence of others or in public, basically. Or another way is if a person, an individual by themselves, publically indecently exposes their genitals or pubic area.
