Ridiculous.

You look in other people's windows, it's your shame, not theirs.

If he wanted to be seen wouldn't he have done it when more people were awake?
 
2009-10-21 01:12:21 PM  
He just wanted to put a little 'cream' in his coffee..

Why was the mother out with her 7-year-old kid walking at 5:30 am? Combined with her bizarre reaction, I say Bitter Lady had a grudge against this poor guy and this was a set-up.

And what on Earth were the cops thinking charging this guy? It's in his own house, unless he stood in front of the window waving his willy at Bitter Lady, I don't see the problem.

Not sure if it's mentioned in the video, but Bitter Lady was the one who was trespassing (walking through the guy's yard). Why isn't she being the one charged as a Peeping Tom?

So much Fail :(

This is the part that got to me when i saw this on the news last night. Burden of proof, all that rot. 5:30am, what the fark are you doing out with your 6-7 year old kid at that hour, anyway? No lady, you were LOOKING, he wasn't showing off, you were out, a light was on, it was dark, you looked over and saw the hairy elephant, and lord knows you must protect your little twit that probably spent HIS formative early time as a youngster doing pretty much the same thing, sans coffee... unless you're as shiatty a parent as we're all going to assume.... then you were pumping the little bastard full of arabica and redbull so you could take him for farking 5:30am walks....

Thank you.

Oh, and this charge is bullshiat. This poor guy is now on the sex offender list for the rest of his life because some busybody was offended after deliberately looking in someone else's house. I agree with the poster above who stated she probably had a grudge with the guy and this was her chance to get him.

I don't think he's on the offender list yet. He'd have to actually be convicted for that to happen. I can't see a judge not throwing out these charges come trial time.
 
2009-10-21 01:44:32 PM  
Hell, I do this at 5:30 pm and there's a park right behind my house with my kitchen easily viewable from the b-ball courts. Should I not do that?
 
2009-10-21 01:45:39 PM  
No way this guy gets convicted, based on burden of proof:

"A trial lawyer, who is not connected to the Williamson's case, says the state will have to prove that Williamson knew people were there for them to get a conviction on the charge that carries a one-year jail term and a $2,000 fine."

Some nosy woman cuts through his lawn, peeks in HIS window, then runs to the cops.

This sounds like he has a case against her AND the cops for even arresting him.

kitryne: I can't see a judge not throwing out these charges come trial time.

You'd be surprised. In college I had a buddy who went to a frat party and drank. He walked home and had to take a leak so he went into a dark alley and took a whiz only some bored cop saw him and arrested him for indecent exposure. He's now a registered sex offender (my buddy not the cop) just because he went into a dark alley and took a leak on a fence. He actually has to register when he moves because he's a sex offender.

On the other hand his roommates now know where all the pubic hairs are coming from.
 
2009-10-21 01:50:36 PM  
What I want to know is why was he even cited? At most the cops should have taken down the woman's story and left it at that.
 
2009-10-21 02:00:42 PM  
In some societies he could have been out in broad daylight and would have been fine. We worry about a lot of the wrong things.

2009-10-21 02:38:31 PM  
No it's not subby. He "faces" up to a year in jail. More than likely this will be dismissed by the DA since it's a case that is likely to encounter jury nullification.

Ya, the cop should have merely let him off with a warning and written him up.
But that's solely at the cops discretion. The cop wanted to say he had intent, that's the cops prerogative. However, now it's up to the DA's office. This will all be forgotten in a few weeks.

ahhh, virginia. when i was stationed there in the 80s the military made it a point to let anyone who lived off base know that you could be cited for crap like this. what a load of crap

from smooshie's link: Channel 5 reports the woman and 7-year-old boy who saw him naked apparently had cut through Williamson's front yard from a nearby path.

charge the little bastard with trespassing

Next thing you know, they'll be barging into my bathroom and charging me with public urination.

Morning Routine: a loosely autobiographical histori-drama in two lines.

The scene: brap is drinking coffee checking out "the farm" i.e. postage stamp garden surrounded by neighboring business' industrial detritus through his back window.

Traffic-Jammed Commuter: Who the feck would live so close to the expressway? And why in the name of all things holy isn't he wearing any clothing?!?!

Brap: Who the feck would drive to work? And why in the name of all things holy would they be wearing clothes?

Pfft...prove it.

Even if he admitted it, it's his house. It was 5:30 in the morning. She was out with her KID at 5:30am?

I say charge HER with being a peeping patty....

let's flip the situation for a minute ... let's say some dude was walking across the lawn of a 29-year old female neighbor, and she was making coffee in the nude. A glimpse of boobies would've had him thrown in jail were the roles reversed ...

When I lived in a house the neighbors right next to us and the ones across the street walked around nude almost every night and never had their blinds or curtains closed. You didn't see me calling the police. Mainly because my hands were occupied.

I agree that the charge is BS, but according to the text link he ain't been convicted of anything. I think at the VERY least he should be suing this woman for tresspass.

FTA:
Channel 5 reports the woman and 7-year-old boy who saw him naked apparently had cut through Williamson's front yard from a nearby path.



and here's a prediction I'd lay $100 on: rather than admitting they are wrong, and tossing this case, prosecutors will offer him a plea deal that knocks this down to the criminal catch-all "disorderly conduct" with no time and a $50 fine.

Which deal this guy will take because he's not a millionaire and lawyers aren't cheap particularly when you are using them for nothing more than to vindicate a point.

Anyone want to guess what would happen to a man walking in a woman's yard at 5:30 looking in her windows?

When making coffee naked at 5:30am in your own kitchen is outlawed, only outlaws will have naked coffee makers and 5:30am will strictly be the minute of lawlessness...or something...

When we lived in a townhouse there was a neighbor a few buildings down that was "famous" for showing up nude in his window as people walked by. Walking your dog... PENIS! Quick trip to the car to get something... PENIS!

Lady was trespassing and invading his privacy. She needs to be the one facing charges. If you can't be naked in your own home, the terrorists win.

If the guy is jerking off while standing on his window sill fine call the cops, in this case ya just move along.

I'm glad to see some action finally being taken against such blatant child endangerment. My daughter is extremely intelligent but even I have trouble explaining to her what this man had done and how he preys on innocent children who are simply walking the street trying to live their lives.

And yes, some children start their days that early, my 7-year old Persephone-Marie starts her day that early with aerobic exercises then it's off to her organic chef classes before her advanced classes begin for the day. I don't want her exposed to such filth as this man mentioned in the article.
