FARMINGTON, Utah –  A 76-year-old man who police say was sunbathing nude in his backyard next to a church parking lot in Utah has pleaded not guilty to lewdness charges.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports (http://bit.ly/1uLJW30 ) that Myron Lee Kipp was in a Farmington, Utah, court Tuesday. Kipp pleaded not guilty to four counts of lewdness involving a child and three counts of lewdness.

Court documents show a police officer called to Kipp's house by neighbors on March 5 could see the man from the church parking lot. The backyard fence is chain link with no privacy slats.

When confronted, a completely nude Kipp told the officer it was his property and he could do what he wanted.

Several parents said they and their children could see the man from the parking lot.

Private property, don't look over. Of course the law is going to be against him though.

^ Agreed.

 

Nudity is something people should get over.

 

It doesn't sound like he went out of his way to make a display of himself.

 

He was laying quietly in his back yard.

 

Probably only 1 kid saw him, and called over 2 others.

 

Sooner or later those kids are going to see nude people.

 

I'd vote him not guilty.

Private property does not give rights to break the law on it.

 

If the dude wants to do it, fine, but make it so others don't see it.  Then he isn't breaking the law.

If he wants to sunbathe nude, put up a privacy fence or go to a nude beach. Otherwise he's just a passive flasher.

I agree. But honestly is it worth spending tax payers money on that?

 

Give him a fine and ask him to put up a privacy fence.

 

I could be wrong but it looks like it's the first time he was caught doing it.

I personally think he shouldn't receive a serious sentence if (and most likely when) he's found guilty; I believe he should only receive a warning, apologize to the witnesses, and put up a privacy fence.

 

HOWEVER, if testimonies claim he was committing rather voyeuristic actions first (stretching in front of the fence) before or while sunbathing, then he should receive a more serious punishment (fine, jail time, etc).

He wasn't doing either; stop playing the "what if" game, it's irrelevant.
