Possible Charges and Defenses for Public Urination in Michigan

man drunk in public carrying kegWhile public urination may not seem like a serious crime, it can carry serious legal ramifications if a proper defense is not made. The Michigan Penal Code does not list public urination as a crime. However, many towns and cities do have local ordinances that make it illegal and offenders face a misdemeanor charge and a minimum 90-days jail sentence. Some towns and municipalities will even seek out a higher charge by charging the offense as an act of indecent exposure.
