TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Topeka City Council will consider making public nudity a misdemeanor offense.

The Topeka Capital-Journal the proposal to be considered Tuesday was prompted by people reporting that a man was walking nude in south central Topeka.

The ban would not apply to children under 10 years old or a woman breastfeeding her child.

State law and city ordinances do not ban public nudity, although state law prohibits it in the context of sexual arousal.

The proposed ordinance would impose penalties only when someone intentionally violates the ban.
