A 76-year-old Utah man who police say was sunbathing nude in his backyard, next to a church parking lot, has pleaded not guilty to lewdness charges. The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reports that Myron Lee Kipp was in court in Farmington on Tuesday. He pled not guilty to four counts of lewdness involving a child and three counts of lewdness.
Court documents indicate that a police officer called to Kipp's house by neighbors on March 5 could see him from the parking lot. The backyard fence is chain link with no privacy slats and several parents said they and their children could see the man from the parking lot. The completely nude Kipp told the officer it was his property and he could do what he wanted.
