Penile Code, Indeed

Another interesting legal matter from How Appealing. Here's the AP account.
A judge dismissed an indecent exposure charge against a woman accused of
disrobing in front of a 14-year-old boy, saying the law only applies to men.
Superior Court Judge Robert W. Armstrong said earlier in the week that the law
only mentions someone who "exposes his person."

"It's gender specific," Armstrong said.

He dismissed a misdemeanor charge against Alexis Luz Garcia, 40, of Corona,
who was cited in May after parents of a neighbor boy said she showed him
full-frontal nudity as he played basketball.

Obviously having a law like this that only applied to men would be unconstitutional. I just thought it was funny that this lady was pissed off at the basketball playing and her first instinct was to take her clothes off. I missed a lot not growing up in the city.
