Trial scheduled for in-home indecent exposure
A Springfield man is scheduled to go on trial for indecent exposure after police say he stood naked inside his home as a 7-year-old boy and his mother walked by.
The defendant, Erick Williamson, says he was in the confines of his home and should be allowed to be naked there. Police say he made a point of making himself visible to a 7-year-old boy and his mother as they walked to school along a path outside Williamson's home.
Williamson's arrest received national attention and spurred debate about whether a person should be subject to arrest for exposure from inside his own home.
Williamson's trial is scheduled for Friday morning in Fairfax County General District Court.
