Eric Williamson, 29-year old commercial diver, was making coffee at 8:30 am in the comfort of his own home. A neighbor with her 7-year son saw him making the coffee through the window of Eric’s house. This would have been a harmless act, the only difference was Eric was not wearing any clothes and the neighbor called the cops.
The unidentified woman claims Eric wanted them to see him naked. He is now facing an indecent exposure charge and if convicted on the misdemeanor charge, he would face up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
“Yes, I wasn’t wearing any clothes but I was alone, in my own home and just got out of bed. It was dark and I had no idea anyone was outside looking in at me,” Williamson said.
Williamson, who is father of a 5-year old girl, said he feels like the victim. “I am a loving dad. 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,” he said.
Eric rents the place with some of his co-workers and they were not at home during his act.
It seems that there is at least one more report of a neighbor claiming to have seen Eric naked in his house through the window.
On Wednesday, investigators told FOX 5 they have reason to believe there may have been another incident in which someone saw Williamson naked in front of his window. They’re asking anyone who may have seen Williamson in the nude through his windows to come forward, even if it was at a different time. Police are especially concerned because the house is located across the street from a bus stop for school children. So on Wednesday, officers canvassed the neighborhood with fliers, asking anyone who may have been subject to an exposure to come forward. Source: www.myfoxdc.com
I am not sure about you all, but there is something wrong about this story. Eric was in his own house, making coffee in the nude. What he does in his house, shouldn’t be any one’s business. And what were these people doing looking inside his house? Isn’t it called voyeurism? Why not buy a pair of binoculars and start looking into other’s houses and calling the cops for every time they do something indecent?
If he were to stand outside his house in the nude, then I would understand the charge but this is just ridiculous.
What do you guys think?
