Indecent exposure - in your own home?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
A Virginia man faces charges of indecent exposure for making coffee in the nude - in his own kitchen. Note the different spins in the different articles.

That's why I keep my blinds closed. I run around the house in various stages of undressed all the time.

He should be suing them for cutting through his yard and peeping lol...

Personally, I don't think anything is going to happen with this.
1. I don't think that he exposed himself at a front window. It's one thing to make coffee nude, it's completely different to stand in front of a window nude. Most people won't go stand in front of their front window in the nude, regardless of the time.
2. Why was she looking in on him? She probably saw him walking to the kitchen in the corner of her eye and she took a look. But after he's in the kitchen, why did she continue trying to get a peek? Unless this guy towers over the lower cupboards, there's no way he would be exposed to the public. Therefore, I don't think she would have been able to see him without trying to spy on him.

Why are there different stories??

First it says she saw him at 530am and then it was at 840am and then 830am. Which one is it??

It says it was dark when she walked across the yard or whatever, but is it dark at 830am?

I was watching the news and saw this story.. It is not indecent exposure IMO. The man was in his home, the woman shouldn't have been looking in the windows. Its not like he was mowing the yard or gardening naked.. That would ne a different story. He has every right to be naked in his house, although maybe he should have ben more careful, and closed the blinds or curtains. But, if she didn't want to see, she shouldn't have been looking, and I certainly don't think she should have involved the authorities.. Since he was not in public.

This was discussed on our radio station the other day. I think its totally stupid. Its IN your house, the woman was tresspassing in the yard, and she had to make choice to look into the window.

It was not like the guy was naked and went to the window and exposed himself KNOWINGLY to the woman walking by. SHE chose to look in the window. When you are getting arrested for walking naked inside your own home - that's where I draw the line.

IMO the lady is the one that should have been "arrested" for tresspassing in the first place - not the guy making coffee!

Instead of the man being harassed about "indecent exposure", why shouldn't the woman be charged for being a "peeping tom"?

I don't see anything wrong with walking around the house naked or nearly so. Granted, I try not to do it with the windows open, but nobody should be sitting there trying to look through my windows.

I can't help but wonder how long she looked before she reported him. Sounds like she must have enjoyed the scenery if she had to go closer to get a better look. She doesn't sound like she's the sharpest pencil in the box.

I have heard the police are going door-to-door in the area trying to find more people to complain about him. They say they have had "reports" that others have seen him, too.

That is the stupidest thing I have heard lately. Why is a "respected member of the community" looking in someone's windows?

Exactly! And she is the wife of a policeman. So it smacks of persecution to me.

That is so stupid! This is the new american way. Poor guy will have to hire an attorney and that will cost him money he may or may not have. He won't get the money back if he is found not guilty. He will have to sue her in civil court to try collect on his losses.

You could lose everything if your nosey neighbor decided to falsely accuse you of a felony. It's up to you to prove your innocent these days. Your innocent until proven guilty days are over.

If he is found guilty he will probably have to register as a sex offender.....

That's such crap....

I'm all for walking around completely naked in your own home. Hell if it was legal I'd be all over walking around naked everywhere! (I'm fairly certain that in the state of Oregon it's perfectly legal to walk around in the buff as long as you aren't touching yourself inapropriately. Too bad i never had the guts to find out if it was true. )

I can't believe how uptight and anal some people really are. Come on lady... Like you've never seen a naked body before? It's ONLY a penis.

If it were me, I'd be countersueing for trespassing and peeking into my windows. How unbelieveably rude.... He should punch her in the face so he has something to really go to jail for.


Edit - I see that she had a young child with her, I can just imagine how the scenario of her getting a 'second' look went. And the guy in the video that says he was compromising people walking along a "Public sidewalk"... No..it was in the dude's own front yard.

LOL, has anyone pointed this out to her?

Seriously dont they have better things to waste tax payers money with. I make coffee naked all the time in my house I also have a tendancy to get up at random times at night to get snacks in the nude...And ahem my probation officer has actually pulled into our house while BF and I were getting busy on the couch...We have a GIANT bay windown in our kitchen with NOTHING to block it from anyone who pulls up to our house..and from the window you can see straight back to our bedroom! Talk about an ackward postion..lol...

Forreal that woman really needs a beating with a smart stick because shes short a few marbles. And if I was that guy Id def be suing her for trespassing and anything else I can through on there!!

Pretty interesting that she is the wife of one of the police officers....Seems to me like she had nothing better to do and probably did not like the guy in the first place and thought this would be her opportunity to get rid of him.

Disgusting...God, I'm sure most people have walked around their own house naked.
post #19 of 25
Maybe he gave her a nasty stare for peeking and she misinterpreted it or something..
People need to get over themselves. In my family growing up it was okay for all family members to walk out of the shower naked and it didn't matter, nudity was okay inside the house. A lot of cultures are like this..But the point is, people are wayy too uptight in general and this lady clearly has issues if she can't get over the fact that she saw a naked man in his own home.

My thoughts exactly!!!! What's next??? Arresting people for showering naked?? Goodnight people! Where is the line??? I mean really.....he was in his own home minding his own business!

I say the police in that town need to find something more constructive to do. That lady should be arrested for trespassing and being a peeping tom.
post #21 of 25
I wonder how the taxpayers in that county feel knowing their cops have nothing better to do that gossip with their wives about neighbors making coffee in the buff....Its just a bunch of malarkey!!!! This guy really needs to counter sue her for trespassing and whatever the charge would be for being a peeping tom!
I just shared this story with BF and he agrees its a bunch of garbage that the lady needs to grow up and get over it!
post #22 of 25
The woman was tress-passing. She also stopped to peep! What was she doing cutting through his yard? She should be the one arrested.

If it had been reversed with her naked inside and a man reporting it he would be a "peeping tom" and thrown in jail!

She sounds like my nan .
post #24 of 25
Natalie you are 100% correct - if it was reversed he'd be labled a peeping tom and be sitting in jail now!
post #25 of 25
Wow really? This lady needs to get a life! Seriously this is just plain rediculous! I have been known to walk around naked when no one is home lol but usually only to get something or w/e. When I am walking I never look into peoples homes...its RUDE and IS invasion of privacy, IF you cant have privacy in your own home, then where can you have it?? I just dont see how the authorities think they have the right to tell people how to live....if the guy wants to be naked, well then just dont look!
