Urinating in Public Charges

Acting in a profane, vulgar or indecent manner is a criminal offense, and urinating in public is considered to be an indecent act. If convicted of this crime, which is a misdemeanor, you could be sentenced to up to one year in jail, fines and other criminal penalties.

It's important to note there are cases in which urinating in public could become more serious. Under Georgia law, urinating in front of a minor could result in mandatory registration as a sex offender. Being labeled a sex offender can have a significant impact on where you work and even where you are allowed to live.
