 The problem was they were focused on the witness claim that I was not wearing shorts at all even though she did not see genitals, so they were trying to apply the "reckless" and "likely to be viewed" aspect of the law.

I guess I just don't know how the 'reckless' part applies here.  Now do they know that a man is not wearing a baggie, even if he was not wearing shorts unless the witness actually saw the genitals.  You were even more covered than that in your own account.  I would also be curious to know if the officer who made the arrest had ever done this before, or if this was his first time going as far as the courts, throwing people to the ground, etc.  on an indecent exposure case before.  If he has a record of doing this repeatedly, this may be some type of a sign he has problems with thonging, which is not outlawed, and should be disciplined at the least for his repeated actions.  A case like this if justified, would seem to be right up the ACLU line, but they are very selective and only take on a small percentage of cases they are presented with. 

In any event, you might want to check with your attorney to see if some type of reimbursement for the treatment you had and false arrest you were subjected to might be appropriate.  I don't know if your case would be thrown out because they had the 'reckless' aspect they were basing their complaint on.  Maybe Maxtlati might have an opinion on this.

 To begin I must offer my congratulations for your victory but also sorry to hear you were forced through all that nerve wracking trauma until it got dismissed. I have watched the progress as I frequent Alum Creek in Delaware county and like to take advantage of the area for nude hikes. Also, I've wondered if it would have any effect on thonging at the beach? I have seen sheriff deputies drive through the campground there but not near the beach area. But then, every time I visit there it rains!

I note that the online docket for the case does not show a dismissal, so it hasn't happened yet. What it does show is that DirtyBird's attorney asked for and got a continuance (delay) and that there is now a new Final Pre-Trail hearing scheduled for June 12. If there is a dismissal coming at that hearing, it's probably some sort of a deal. For instance, Ohio statues have a provision for what's called a "pre-trial diversion". See O.R.C. Section 2935.36. With some sort of deal, it's not clear to me at all whether a lawsuit to recover all DirtyBird has lost (he's lost money and he's had to deal with the mental anguish of all this crap) is even viable. He'd have to run that by his attorney.

You can be sure that prosecutors will figure out how to extract their pound of flesh one way or another. This doesn't sound like a "win" to me--just less of a loss. But after being in the "judicial system" wringer for a while, it's designed to make you want to do anything just to get out of it. Guilty or not.

Regarding the "reckless" and "likely to be viewed" parts of the law, I'm not sure how they apply either. (This sounds like some sort of explanation that might come from his attorney about why to take a deal because the prosecution would hammer on it in some way at trial, and who knows if the jurors will understand what they really mean.) The law requires that you expose your genitals recklessly, not that you recklessly *appear* like you might be naked (when you are not). Similarly, "likely to be viewed" only applies to your genitals being viewed, not some theoretical "people are likely to think you are exposing your genitals when you are not". The state is required to prove that DirtyBird exposed his genitals beyond a reasonable doubt, and they still have nothing, as far as I can tell. [Side note: the only provision in Ohio's public indeceny law that has to do with appearance, is appearing to masturbate, and that does not apply here at all.]

But they can still apply pressure to a defendant, and when you go to trial there is *always* a risk, even for something that looks to us like it is black-and-white. Sometimes it is worth it to extract oneself from the legal system, even when completely innocent, before they still manage to screw you further. That's why plea deals end over 95% of all criminal cases.

There's one more tragic element to this: if you can get arrested and squeezed by the legal system while being completely legal, you're going to be extremely cautious getting anywhere near a line that might get you arrested. Would you go running in cheeky shorts again? I doubt it. Would you worry about even wearing a thong? You bet. So they've managed to control DirtyBird and push back on any thong-wearing in that part of the state. Because now it will always be in the back of anybody's mind that they could be arrested for it and put through the wringer over it.

The case is still not dismissed. In fact, on May 10 DirtyBird's lawyer filed another motion for a continuance (delay). That was accepted and the new Final Pre-Trail date is June 26. Something may be happening behind the scenes, but it certainly won't be over until June 26.

DirtyBird's case was finally officially dismissed yesterday. And he got stuck with court costs.

He got screwed over quite royally in this whole affair.

 At least he didn't get arrested and he doesn't have a record. Hopefully they leave him alone after this.

There would not have been a case to dismiss if there was no arrest.  I was certainly screwed over for wearing something that is legal and had I not had to consider what would have happened with my job had a trial not gone the way it was expected (can't always rely on a jury to base their decision solely on the letter of the law) I would have pushed for a trial rather than take the sure-thing and having it dismissed and paying the court costs.  However, I still had to pay a lot more for my defense and have no way of getting that back.

@undercover.

He DID get arrested. And while he doesn't have a record, even having an arrest (particularly public indecency) can cause problems.

I'm not offering legal advice, I'm just giving some personal advice due to my own experience with being arrested. 

Go down to your local Courthouse, DPS office or whomever handles criminal records and request a copy of your criminal record.  You will have to be fingerprinted and they will give you a certified copy of your record.  Most likely, it will show up on your record even though it was dismissed.

I was arrested for DUI while having heat related illness and it took quite a bit of doing to get it dismissed. The ER nurses were telling the officer that I was just severely dehydrated and was okay after an IV, but since it was 4th of July, he wasn't budging on taking me to jail.  The weird thing is that in Texas on the 4th of July, there is a no refusal law where you have to take a mandatory breathalizer for DUI and if you refuse, they will take you to the hospital and draw your blood involuntarily.  I never remember taking a breathalizer before I got to the hospital, but after my IV and I started feeling better, the nurses tried to persuade the officer to release me, but he said I was going to jail for DUI, because I had to be on something.  The officer never ordered a blood test, which was unbelievable, but the nurse said that she would order one when she saw that the officer was being ridiculous.  My blood alcohol content was 0.0 and negative for the drug panel except for cannabis.  I spent 30 hours in jail because it was a holiday weekend.  I was between jobs at the time, so they wouldn't let me bail myself out. 

The thing that sucks the most is that the nurses kept telling the officer that arrested me that I just needed an IV because I was dehydrated.  The officer said that I admitted to drinking and the when the nurses asked me if I take any prescribed medications.  I said that I am currently prescribed Lyrica, but am not currently taking it now.  He used that to his defense for my DUI case.

All said and done, I had to pay a lawyer $10K to get the case dismissed.  After the dismissal, I had to pay the lawyer $10K more after an 18 month probation to get the arrest expunged from my record.  The lawyer told me that if I ever was asked if I had been arrested, I could legally say, "no" unless it was for federal employment after my case was expunged. 

It's no longer about right and wrong, but rather how much you have to pay a lawyer these days.
