Being charged with sexual assault is a very serious and detrimental event. In fact, even the mere accusation of sexual assault can have an extreme detrimental impact on a person for many years. In addition to the negative stigma in the community, the personal and legal penalties associated with this crime are also very serious. The possibility of prison time or being added to the sex offender registry can be very daunting and scary; however, not every individual convicted of sexual assault is automatically placed on the registry. If you are facing a potential conviction for sexual assault, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense attorney to assist you with your case. Prosecutors will aggressively try to prosecute all sex crimes, which makes it very important to have an attorney who will fight on your behalf. Our experienced attorneys will look at the facts of your specific case and find the strongest defenses and strategies. The elements of this crime are willfully masturbating in a public place in the presence of another. Since prosecutors attempt to aggressively prosecute these crimes, public masturbation can be very difficult to defend. In fact, in many cases, accused individuals are also facing charges of indecent exposure or other related offenses.

In the UK, the standard sentence for masturbation in public is around 14 days in prison - although it can vary based on conditional factors. In Indonesia, the maximum sentence is 32 months' imprisonment and in Saudi Arabia it's three years behind bars and lashes. Don't ask me how I know this. Meanwhile, over in Italy, masturbating in public is not a crime, according to the Italian supreme court. Even if the sicko decides to whip out his wiener in a deliberate act for it to be seen by other members of the public, it's totally not illegal. A year-old was caught doing just that in front of students at the University of Catania campus. His original trial concluded in him receiving a three-month jail term for 'practising autoerotisism' in front of students. However, that has recently been overturned by a judge who has identified that the pervert wasn't breaking the law. Consequently, the court has eliminated the criminal aspect of sentencing for obscene acts in public, reports the Independent. The offender, named as Pietro L, hasn't quite received a 'get out of jail card' just yet, though.
