Utah Man, 77, Gets Plea Deal For Nude Sunbathing

A 77-year-old Utah man charged with lewdness after sunbathing nude in his backyard has agreed to a plea deal that keeps his record clean as long as he wears a swimsuit.

Myron Lee Kipp pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges Tuesday in Farmington. But under the terms of the deal with prosecutors, the pleas won't be recorded if Kipp stays covered over the next year.

Attorney Bill Albright says Kipp has been taking in the sun nude for 30 years, and it wasn't a problem until new neighbors moved in.

Last year, police said children could see the nude Kipp from a church parking lot behind his house.

Kipp appeared in court Tuesday and said he was ready to put the case behind him.
