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.
Erick Williamson, 29, has argued since his October arrest that he should not be punished for being naked in the privacy of his own home.
Police and prosecutors, as well as the two women who testified against him, said he intended to expose himself and made no attempt to conceal himself in a residential neighborhood filled with children.
“It’s really a weight off my shoulders after these last six months,” Williamson said after his acquittal. “I think (the verdict) kind of sets the record straight. It was an innocent action.”
Wow, I cannot believe you can be arrested for being naked in your own home.
