Thumbs up Judge Rules Indecent Exposure Is for Men Only

A Riverside judge dismissed an indecent exposure charge against a woman accused of disrobing in front of a 14-year-old boy, saying the law only applies to men.

Superior Court Judge Robert W. Armstrong said earlier in the week that the law only mentions someone who "exposes his person."

"It's gender specific," Armstrong said.

He dismissed a misdemeanor charge against Alexis Luz Garcia, 40, of Corona, who was cited in May after parents of a neighbor boy said she showed him full-frontal nudity as he played basketball.

Prosecutor Alison N. Norton said the decision to throw out the case will be appealed because another section of state law says that "words used in the masculine gender include the feminine and neuter."

Norton said Garcia had complained that the 14-year-old was making too much noise while playing basketball. She went out on her sundeck.

"He looked up at her, she looked down at him, and she disrobed," Norton contended.

The boy ran inside and told his parents, who complained to Garcia.

"She threatened to do it every time he played basketball," and the parents called police, Norton said.

Well, at least women now know that they are free to unabashedly do the right thing.

I just don't understand what 14 year old boy is going to complain about something like that? At 14, I would have been out there playing ball every waking moment.

Given this specific case, i think she did the right thing (as long as she stayed in her property) but at 14 I was a perv and I would have probably called all my of buddies for some extensive ball playing in front of her house or kept it to myself but I would not have told my parents that's for sure.

Did you mean 'waking' or did you leave out an 'n' ? ;-)
