A: If you have received a ticket for indecent exposure, it's important to review the specific circumstances and the law under which you were charged. Indecent exposure generally requires an intentional act of exposing oneself to another person in a public place. If the exposure was accidental or there were no observers, you might have a defense.

It's advisable to document the details of the incident and consult with a lawyer who can help you understand the charges and prepare a defense. You should also consider whether there is any evidence that can support your account of the incident. Legal representation is crucial in these cases to protect your rights and potentially mitigate the consequences.
