The criminal charge of Indecent Exposure ranges from a Gross Misdemeanor to a Felony in Las Vegas, Nevada depending on the defendant’s prior criminal history. Nevada Revised Statute “NRS” 201.220 defines Indecent Exposure as, “a person who makes any open and indecent or obscene exposure of his or her person, or of the person of another”.
