Eric Williamson says he had no idea anyone could see him in his kitchen as he made coffee in the nude. A father is facing charges of indecent exposure after he was spotted making a cup of coffee in the nude — in his own home. Eric Williamson, from Springfield, Virginia, was brewing coffee in his kitchen when a woman and a seven-year-old boy walked past the window and saw him. The woman complained to police who arrested Williamson shortly after the Monday morning incident. Any of my friends and anyone knows that and there is not a chance on this planet I would ever, ever, ever do anything like that to a kid.

As Erick Williamson sees it, being naked is liberating, and if passers-by get an eyeful while he's standing in front of a picture window, that's not his problem. A Fairfax County judge saw it a little differently Friday, convicting Williamson of indecent exposure in a case that has raised questions about what's OK when you're in your own home. Two women said they saw much more of Williamson than they cared to in October, even though he never left the confines of his home. He received neither jail time nor a fine but is appealing anyway, saying a larger principle is at stake. Williamson testified that he never intended to expose himself and was simply exercising "personal freedom" as he spent several hours naked in his Springfield home packing up belongings. Police, prosecutors and two witnesses, though, said Williamson's actions were designed to draw attention to himself. The first woman, school librarian Joyce Giuliani, said she heard some loud singing as she left her home and drove to work.
