Conviction For Lewd Behavior Leads To Lifetime Park Ban

Canaveral National Seashore

National Park News

On January 19th, a ranger on patrol in a beach area frequented by nudists came upon a naked man engaged in lewd behavior with beachgoers no more than 75 yards away and in the direction in which he was walking. While citing the man – identified as Jon Freiden – for disorderly conduct (36 CFR 2.34), she found that Freiden had been cited twice before for the same offence – once in 2005, then again in 2006. Her citation therefore called for a mandatory appearance before a federal magistrate. On April 10th, Freiden appeared in court and pled guilty to the offence. He was fined $1,000 and banned from the park for life. Lewd behavior in the nudist area has been an ongoing problem for rangers.
