What state is this in?
Open Lewdness (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 5901) is a Misdemeanor of the Third Degree.
Indecent Exposure (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 3127) is a Misdemeanor of the First Degree if the victim is less than 16 years of age. Otherwise, Indecent Exposure is a Misdemeanor of the Second Degree.
The maximum penalty that can be imposed for first time offenders is set forth in Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 1104, which provides as follows:
§ 1104. Sentence of imprisonment for misdemeanors.
A person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor may be sentenced to imprisonment for a definite term which shall be fixed by the court and shall be not more than:
1. Five years in the case of a misdemeanor of the first degree.
2. Two years in the case of a misdemeanor of the second degree.
3. One year in the case of a misdemeanor of the third degree.
The above is only the maximum penalty. The Court has the discretion to impose a lower penalty depending on the circumstances of the case. The court also has the authority to impose fines in accordance with the schedule set forth in Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes § 1101.
