Sex Offense Lawyers: Most sex offenses are considered felonies. Public indecency is a lesser sex offense, therefore is considered a misdemeanor. A person charged with a sex offense can face jail time, probation, parole, significant fines, registration requirements, loss of the right to vote or own a weapon, and social losses.
