Subject: More jail time for naked rambler

More jail time for naked rambler

A man known as the naked rambler has been jailed for 12 months after being convicted of a breach of the peace.

Stephen Gough, 49, was brought into the dock at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday wearing no clothes or shoes.

He was arrested at the same court last month after attempting to leave the building naked, following an acquittal for breach of the peace.

The former marine, from Eastleigh in Hampshire, has twice walked naked from Land's End to John O'Groats.

During his appearance, Gough told the court that if members of the public were offended by his nakedness then the problem was with them and not with him.

He has spent most of the past two-and-a-half years in prison at an estimated cost to the taxpayer of more than £200,000.

Walking around Glasgow in your birthday suit in December?  Brrrrr...!

I think all that jail time is a bit excessive, don't you?  Maybe some community service?  Of course, Gough would argue he's already done his community service by showing all the folks what God bless him with!

Odd .... he's allowed to break the law, it seems, even on his appearance in court (naked ? ).

You'd think they'd just handcuff him, and stick a pair of underpants on him  (at least) ?

Maybe the judge is female, and wanted ALL the evidence, before her ?















:D

The Judge did ask for the bare facts of the case.

Gotta expose the case to the jury, better not keep anything concealed!

Maybe he's a frustrated John Holmes competitor .... wants to crow about his assets ?



Maybe his assets are just so damned big ..... there are NO pants on earth he can get comfortable in ?
