Indecent Exposure Charges For Woman At Minnesota United Game

Rose Picklo was charged with indecent exposure after she took her shirt off at a Minnesota United game. The 23-year-old was reported by the mother of a 7-year-old who told police that her son saw the woman’s breasts during the soccer match. Picklo was seated behind them and had no shirt on. She was told to put on a shirt repeatedly and refused to listen. Picklo argued with the officers who told her that she would be arrested if she didn’t put her shirt back on. She was apparently holding a beer on one hand while holding her cell phone in he other hand and recorded the encounter on her cell phone. Picklo was put in handcuffs and refused to leave the stadium. Picklo was carried out of the stadium and was taken to the Hennepin county jail. She will appear in court in October for her first appearance to deal with the gross misdemeanor charge.

In Picklo’s case, indecent exposure was charged out as a gross misdemeanor. Picklo will be facing up to one year in jail and up to a $3,000 fine. Statute 617.23 governs the indecent exposure laws in Minnesota, which can range from a misdemeanor to a felony. The statute holds that it is a misdemeanor when a person commits the following acts in a public place: (1) willfully and lewdly exposes the person’s body, or the private parts thereof (2) procures another to expose private parts or (3) engages in any open or gross lewdness or lascivious behavior, or any public indecency. The charge becomes a gross misdemeanor if the person commits any of the above three scenarios when a minor under the age of 16 is present or if the person has a prior criminal sexual conduct conviction. The charge can become a felony depending on how many priors the person has involving criminal sexual conduct and if the person intentionally confined another person restricting their freedom. Picklo’s charge was enhanced to a gross misdemeanor because of the minor who was under 16 years old who was present when she exposed herself.
