  1. Indecent Exposure as you have described would be a Class B Misdemeanor which can carry up to six months in jail and a fine up to $500, unless it involved a child witnessing the nudity in which case it would be a Class A Misdemeanor which can carry up to eleven months and twenty nine days in jail and a fine up to $2,500. Indecent exposure is defined in Tennessee Code Annotated 39-13-511, which you can read at http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/tncode/. What sentence you are likely to be facing, assuming they can prove the case, is going to be dependent on many factors including: age, prior criminal history, employment, circumstances of this instance, etc. I would advise you to seek the legal help of an attorney in your area so that you can be prepared to fully defend yourself in court.

  2. With an attorney that handles these types of charges, you're likely looking at dismissal or diversion. You'll want this charge expunged thereafter.
