Skip to comments.Naked Justice: Arrested for Nudity in His Own Kitchen
Posted on 10/25/2009 12:24:37 PM PDT by AJKauf
Youre standing in your kitchen making coffee. You are naked, but no one else is home. Its early in the morning and you are in the privacy of your own home. All right, so maybe youre a little bit odd, and maybe not everyone makes coffee naked. But your house, your rules, right?
Thats probably what Virginia resident Eric Williamson was thinking last Monday morning as he made himself coffee while dressed in nothing but his birthday suit. Unfortunately for Williamson, he wasnt quite as alone as he thought. Walking through his yard were a woman and her seven-year-old son, on their way to the sons school. The woman a wife of a police officer saw Williamsons naked torso through his window and called the cops. Williamson was arrested and charged with indecent exposure.
There are some disputed accounts of this story. It is unclear precisely what time of the morning it happened and whether or not the man moved to another window as the mother and child walked across the lawn in order to remain in their range of vision.Whats not in dispute here is that the man was in his own home and the mother and kid were on his property, walking across his grass.....

meanwhile in san freako a man can get naked with other men and have sex in public
what a messed up country we now live in due to the left
A different article about this was posted Friday or Saturday. I’m glad there is more info. This twit walked across his lawn and looked into his windows. He should sue her for peeping (yes this is a pun) into his window and for trespassing. As a police officers wife, she should know better.
Seems pretty straightforward to me - the woman and her son shouldn’t have been in the guy’s yard and they shouldn’t have been looking in his window. What’s difficult about this?
libertarian and nanny state ping.
Sadly her husband is a police officer not with no respect for the law as well as no respect for another’s privacy. The went over with his henchmen as an abuse of power stood beside this man’s bed with his fellow officers and took the man in. He should have just said, “honey I understand you felt violated. I’ll be happy to talk with you when I get home. Thanks for calling. I need to go. Love you.”
Why were the lady and kid walking on the guy’s grass is what I want to know. Unreal.
Having had children next door who persisted, after numerous times being told not to do so, in walking within Three Feet of my windows on their way to the bus stop, the woman should be charged with trespassing and/or filing a false complaint and/or whatever else they can throw at her. She's a stupid woman teaching her child to be a mindless, entitled moron. (BTW, I successfully had the bus stop changed to keep the kids from walking on my lawn)
OK, there’s nudity in your kitchen and then there’s N U D I T Y in your kitchen. If I’m sittin’ in the front window enjoying my latte like that BJC pose in Esquire? I’m just sayin’.
Oh, come on. Let’s decide if he’s guilty or not guilty.
He's done for. Even if charges are dropped, the woman is a cop's wife so hubby and his buddies will go after this guy if he so much as thinks of jaywalking.
I'd have the woman arrested for trespassing and window peeping and any laws about having a minor with her during a crime. Throw the kid in juvie just for good measure.
Well, if you read the article, you would be entitled to call the cops on HIM. :-)
And BTW, I expect you’ll be getting a lot of email about prospective new neighbors after this post :-D
In my intro to law class my Professor posed us this legal question:
There is a man and a woman in this story. One is exercising in front of their window naked. The other is standing on the public sidewalk looking into the window. A police officer pulls up and sees the scene. Who does he arrest?
Disturbing to see law enforcement officials acting like this.
“The woman a wife of a police officer saw Williamsons naked torso through his window and called the cops. Williamson was arrested and charged with indecent exposure.”
The first question is whether he left the window open so a casual passerby could see him naked, in which case I would have to blame him. But if the woman made a special effort to look into his window (e.g. to see past partially opened blinds), I would say a strong case could be made for charging her with being a Peeping Tom—no different than a man who comes up to a woman’s window to see whatever he can see.
Not legal advice, I am not a lawyer.
You COULD argue that it was indecent exposure if he could be seen from the public sidewalk. If he could only be seen from his yard, and the woman was trespassing on his property, then I don’t see how they can possibly make a case.
So, I guess it depends if the window faces the yard and if there isn’t a complete screen of bushes or a fence. Otherwise, the police may twist things to favor this nitwit woman.
If I were he, I would put up a fence and some no trespassing signs, since otherwise I suppose people can say that they have a right to walk through—since we are talking legal technicalities and not common neighborly politeness.
OK, I just watched the news report, and as a healthy heterosexual female, I shall have to say....
NOT GUILTY! LOL
The woman should have been busted; obviously she is a Peeping Tomasina.
The fact that she’s the wife of a cop means, of course, that she gets to do as she pleases without fear of punishment in the Banana Republic which is the New America.
The Rule of Law now takes a back seat to whom you know and what your position is in society.
This whole affair is a travesty of justice which should not be allowed to stand. Indeed, the woman should be fined and jailed.
It’s not so much the pose as the pose with that smile on Clinton’s face.
It’s obvious that the police officer is not a conservative and is not a member of the Oathkeepers.
You don’t want to know how he makes the holes in his donuts.....
Speak for yourself.
Good Lord! I hope he wasn’t frying bacon. ;-)
I'm with you. Can't they charge the lady with some kind of trespass, or maybe violation of a peeping tom law? How about contributing to the delinquency of a minor - teaching her child to violate other's property?
Or how many donuts and cups of coffee he can carry at the nudist colony.
LOL! Great story!
Then Naked Coffee guy needs an apology from the police.
"I had a neighbor lady who called the police because a man on our street was exposing himself. When the police got to her house they looked out her window into the window next door and saw a naked man from the waist up.
'Lady, you can't see that he's exposing himself' the officer said. 'Well, if you stand up on this stool right here, you can see everything' she said."
If YOU are looking into ANYONE’s window of their PRIVATE residence, under any circumstances, by what rights can you claim “you are offended” (in a criminal sense), by anything you see? None; unless there is some clear evidence that the person(s) in the private residence were knowingly using the window for a public display?
The man should counter-sue for invasion of privacy.
His acts were, by all accounts regarding HIS actions, private.
The “mother and child” turned them into “public” acts, by THEIR actions, not his.
Whether or not he counter-sues the woman, the criminal case should be dismissed.
Naked Coffee Guy....
...like Tourist Guy, just...uh, less encumbered. ;)
RE: Good Lord! I hope he wasnt frying bacon. ;-)
My comments to my wife, LOL
Lynch cited a case where a man was replacing the carpet in his home when he found a bullet under the carpet, put it aside and forgot about it. A while later his ex-girlfriend falsely accused him of stealing her stereo. When the cop showed up he let him into his home to see that the stereo wasn't there. The cop spotted the bullet, and because the man had a prior felony, he got a minimum 15-year prison term for possession of "ammunition" because of that one bullet.
“teaching her child to violate other’s property”
yep. And she’s a police officer’s wife! Bad lessons for the kid. He’s learning to trespass and then complain and blame others, to top it all off. Maybe the mom was embarrassed when she saw the guy was nude and then tried to make it not her fault. A bad situation, not matter what.
Ummm...I hope the coffee isn’t really, REALLY hot and you’ve got very, VERY steady hands! Otherwise that could be an OW-EE!
Not mentioned or even suggested is the very real possibility that he was watching to see what two people were doing on HIS lawn.
I would expect that the case would be dismissed with a warning to both the man and the woman trespasser.
They didn’t bother to write what the women or his roomate said. Poor reporting. His roomate said that the guy was fired on Friday and was on a drunken binge running around the house with nothing but his hard-hat on.
He says his roomates weren’t home. They say they were home that morning.
“The roommate says “we wake up to Eric running around the house with nothing but a workhat on, butt naked, of course because he was drunk.”
When faced with the facts, Eric admits that he lied.
Eric says “at that time I was upstairs, downstairs without clothes on for several hours. And then I put some pants on. If she was walking down the road and said she saw me naked, it’s a good possibility but I don’t have a timeframe.
Who peed in your Cherios this morning? I was simply trying to state that he was in his house and this woman was on his lawn. If you want to argue about something, try someone else. You will not disrupt my Monday. Good day.
