PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a Prattville man has been given a 3-day jail sentence for contempt of court for wearing so-called saggy pants in public.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports that 20-year-old LaMarcus D. Ramsey was in Autauga County Circuit Court to enter a plea on a charge of receiving stolen property. It wasn't known early Wednesday whether Ramsey has an attorney.
Circuit Judge John Bush told Ramsey that his blue jeans were sagging too low. The 3-day stint will be served in the Autauga Metro jail.
The judge told Ramsey to buy pants that fit or a belt when he gets out of jail.
