 State v. Gunson (Dissenting Opinion by J. Acoba)
Contrastingly, indecent exposure under HRS § 707-734(1) requires that "the person intentionally exposes the person's genitals to a person to whom the person is not married." (Emphasis added.) As such, indecent exposure requires a different, and greater mental state than sexual assault in the fourth degree.
Therefore, indecent exposure cannot be a lesser included offense of sexual assault in the fourth degree, under HRS § 701-109(a), because the mental state of indecent exposure is both different and greater than that of sexual assault in the fourth degree.
The end result of sexual assault in the fourth degree is "alarm" or "fear of bodily injury," HRS § 707-733(1)(b), whereas the end result of indecent exposure is "affront," HRS § 707-734(1).
