Naked Saratoga Springs 90 Days In Jail

Naked Saratoga Springs 90 Days In Jail, A Saratoga Springs woman wasn’t wearing any clothes when she walked into two businesses along Route 67 on Tuesday, authorities said Wednesday.

Barbara LaFleur of Lake Avenue allegedly walked into Curtis Lumber and a nearby Stewart’s Shops on Tuesday completely naked as a form of “free expression,” according to District Attorney James A. Murphy III.

Aside from her absence of clothing, Murphy said the 49-year-old engaged in otherwise natural conversation with employees at both businesses before she left.

Curtis Lumber manager Bob Eakin said a woman entered the store naked and the incident was captured on the store’s video surveillance system, but referred further questions to the company president.

Stewart’s spokesman Tom Mailey said the manager of the store — at Route 67 and East Line Road — had a brief conversation with the woman to make sure she was OK.

“The manager asked her if she knew she was naked,” Mailey said, adding that the woman left the store following the conversation. LaFleur was later located by Saratoga County sheriff’s deputies, who Murphy said charged her with public lewdness, a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail.

“It appears she must have been engaging in some sort of free expression,” Murphy said. “Unfortunately, that form of free expression is defined under the penal law as public lewdness.”

LaFleur was released on an appearance ticket returnable to Ballston Town Court at a later date.
