Man cleared of at-home indecent exposure

SPRINGFIELD, Va., April 8 (UPI) -- A Virginia man was acquitted of indecent exposure in his own home, his second trial on the charges after an appeals court overturned his initial conviction.

Erick Williamson, 29, who was convicted of indecent exposure in December by a Fairfax General District judge, appealed the conviction. He was found not guilty Wednesday by a Fairfax County Circuit Court jury after less than 20 minutes of deliberations, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

Williamson was charged after two women reported seeing him standing naked in the doorway to the carport at his Springfield home Oct. 19. One of the women was accompanied by her 7-year-old son.

Williamson, who admitted to going about his morning routine nude Oct. 19, denied standing in his carport doorway and said he never intended for anyone to see him. He said he would have covered up if he had known he was visible to passersby.

"It's a weight off my shoulders," Williamson said after Wednesday's verdict. "I think it sets the record straight. It was an innocent action."
