San Diego Obscenity Defense

Obscenity is a highly subjective reference to material or acts which display or describe sexual activity in a manner appealing only to “prurient interest,” with no legitimate artistic, literary or scientific purpose. Pictures, writings, film or public acts which are found to be obscene are not protected by the free speech guarantee of the First Amendment.

Obscene behavior is the act in which any person knowingly exposes his person or private parts in any public place, or in any place where it may be common area to other persons to be offended or annoyed. Obscene behavior can also be charged as a misdemeanor to a person whom advises or helps any person to expose himself or takes part in any manner that is offensive to decency.
