Legal Question in Criminal Law in Virginia

Public Masterbation

A male adult was having phone sex

in a car in a dark parking lot. Another

male adult approaching the car, sees

the actions and possibly exposed

privates from a few cars away,

becomes agitated, comes closer to

confirm and then leaves, most likely

to report it. What are consequences?

What has to proved? Exposure?

Intent? Can the police search phone

records? get security camera data?

and last. why would they bother?

What would be the process? Is an

attorney necessary?

In other words, this type of inquiry is utterly premature.
