S.F. Nudists Found Guilty of Being Nude
The trio was arrested on Feb. 1, the same day the city's nudity ban went into effect; they claimed they should not have been arrested, and have insisted that police are targeting them and violating their free speech.
But a judge totally disagreed yesterday afternoon, ruling that they were all three guilty, at least of disobeying the new city law, and ordered them each to pay a $100 fine as well as $92 in court fees.Their attorney, Christina DiEdoardo, says she will appeal the judge's decision within the next 30 days.
The nudists claim police are targeting them, only citing and arresting the notorious activists while ignoring other nudity in the city. The most recent example being the naked bike ride that occurred over the weekend for Earth Day, DiEdoardo said.
"The only people who get cited for the ordinance are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit," she said. "They want to punish people for having the temerity to challenge Supervisor [Scott] Wiener."
Wiener authored the legislation after the Castro became a new public hotspot for men and their cock rings. Wiener decided there was such thing as too much nudity, and his fellow supervisors agreed.
