Judge allows naked jogging

BANGOR, Maine (AP) -- A judge has ruled that two undergraduates at the University of Maine did not violate the state's indecent conduct law by jogging naked.

Debra Ballou, of Island Falls, and Kathryn Mann, of Fayetteville, N.Y., won the case without hiring a lawyer and by asking just one question of the prosecution's only witness.

Maine law states that people are guilty of indecent conduct only when they "knowingly expose their genitals in public."

Ballou, 20, asked the arresting officer whether he saw her genitals Nov. 2.

"Not that I recall," replied Orono police officer John Ewing.

"That's all I have," Ballou told the court.

Judge Jesse Gunther, of the 3rd District Court in Bangor, then ruled that a woman naked in the street is not an indecent act under Maine law because a woman's genitals are primarily internal.

Gunther grinned slightly as he said, "I would assume the Legislature will probably be addressing this issue."

I love legel loopholes... Like the people who are selling property on the moon due to the wording of an international agreemenr that says, "countries cannot own proprety in space". They guy simply read this and said he is not a "country" but only onw man so he has a legel right to claim the moon as property. Hes gona make Billions but we all know that some day everyones deeds to their space property are gona be worthless. I mean whose gona actualy fly to the moon to shoo away the riff raff..
