2/26 Man Pleads Not Guilty to Walking Around St. Vincent de Paul Without Pants

Barry Grady of Lomira, charged with lewd and lascivious behavior and disorderly conduct after he walked around the Hartford St. Vincent de Paul store naked from the waist down, pleaded through his attorney not guilty to the charges Monday afternoon in Washington County Circuit Court. He will have a jury trial in March. According to the criminal complaint, a Hartford police officer was sent to the store on October 28th. The manager said a man holding a pair of pants was wearing only a shirt. Grady told the manager he was looking for pants. When she asked if he came in the store wearing pants, he said he did. He told the manager his pants were in the fitting room and she told him to put them on. When she came back, Grady was allegedly walking around with the pants folded and his lower half exposed. Upon questioning, Grady told the officer he was buying work pants. When he tried the pants on, he said he exited the fitting room wearing boxer shorts. Grady later admitted he lied and amended his statement, saying he did it to see the reactions when people saw him. A jury trial will begin at 8:30 a.m. March 25. The trial is expected to take one day. A jury status hearing is set for March 13. If convicted, Grady could face a maximum sentence of more than nine months imprisonment and more than $10,000 in fines.
