Laws involving nudity are the legal equivalent of a greased pig.
In North Carolina, police say it is legal for a man to walk around nude as long as he remains on his property.
Reporters in Charlotte were seemingly afraid to approach the man for an interview, but, according to neighbors, the unidentified male routinely stands in the doorway of his home wearing his birthday suit.
He’s been doing it multiple times a week for 10 years. Neighbors say they want to protect their children from seeing the naked man, which is understandable.
A photo on the Charlotte Observer website shows suitably blurred naughty bits and what appears to be a defiant and unclothed middle finger aimed at a neighbor.
According to the article, in North Carolina a person can only be charged with indecent exposure if they “willfully expose the private parts of his or her person in any public place and in the presence of any other person or persons.”
Even though the man is publicly viewable, he is presumably not breaking the law because he is on private property.
Before you open a nude beach on your front lawn, know that in most states, if you are nude and visible to the public, you are breaking the law. Especially if you do it multiple times a week for 10 years.
In Georgia, like in North Carolina, the indecency law requires the nudity be in a “public place,” but I am confident prosecutors here would find a way to put an orange jumpsuit on this fellow.
