This is a reversible conviction.
According to the US Constitution, a person has a reasonable expectation
of privacy in his own home.
The person complaining is more guilty of eavesdropping than the naked
person inside his home..
The reports I read clearly showed the man was an exhibitionist, and that he
exposed himself when children were present. The guy was clearly showing
himself, and this was no case of someone just getting a look through a
Part of the testimony:
A few hours later, Yvette Dean was walking her 7-year-old son to school
along a trail that runs by Williamson's home.
She heard a loud rattle, looked to her left and saw Williamson standing
naked, full frontal, in a side doorway.
"He gave me eye contact," Dean said, but otherwise made no gestures toward
her or her son.
As with so many things. More information comes available,
later, and the situation is seen in a different light. My
original opinion was that the woman and child had crossed
his yard, and were trespassing at early AM. This further
writing suggests the fellow was exhibitionist.
I wonder how many times a day this (lack of information;
learn more later) happens to me? More than I know, I'd dare
That was later corrected. IIRC, the time was closer to 8:30 or 9:00 whent
he kid was going to school. As for hanging him, reports are that he was
hung. At least enough to be willing to show off.
If he was exposing himself and attracing attention, that is wrong, but if it
was accidental, different story. We'll probably never know for sure.
Privacy might include drawing the drapes to prevent visual access...the
jerk was standing in front of a picture window on one occasion, in an
open doorway on another. There are noise ordinances, too, but that also
involves the extension of unpleasantness from the home to the public.
I believe that all of us can remember the times we have been naked in a
"public" place, even if it was to take a shower by a creek deep in the woods
while camping. Well, not all of us, but most of us. I certainly know that
when I am naked, I fully arrange the situation ahead of time so that I don't
accidentally flash anyone. And in those situations where I am suddenly
aware that I am in view by accident, I end the situation quickly.
This man did just the opposite, arranging things, and doing things to
I predict that he will follow this obsession, but the next time, the judge
will hit him with the full Monty. He's like a child molester. He won't
They have also said, repeatedly, that there is no expectation of
privacy in public places. They have also stated multiple times, that
there is no privacy interest involved in what can be seen from a public
area. Thus, anything from the sidewalk is not private (although in case
maybe it should be.
My favorite follow-up in this one is the photographer who tried to
convince the judge that it was not a privacy issue because the ladder he
used to look over the wall was on the sidewalk. The judge was less than
To find that place where the rats don't race
and the phones don't ring at all.
There was the little old lady who complained to the police
about a naked couple frolicking about their yard. When the
police showed up and said they couldn't see the couple, the
little old lady handed them her binoculars.
From another group posting:
"[FAIRFAX, Va] A man charged with indecent exposure after two women
said they saw him naked inside his own home was acquitted Wednesday by
a Virginia jury."
So, people who live in glass houses...

Coffee naked is good.
