Law’s Michael Benza explains public indecency laws in Ohio

Can women be topless in Ohio’s public parks?
Cleveland MagazineMichael Benza, professor of practice at the School of Law, said Ohio’s public indecency laws paint an unclear picture as to whether or not women can be topless in public spaces. “This comes up every summer, because every summer, people do this,” he said. “There will be women who will go out and for whatever reason—whether they want to challenge the statutes, whether they just like to go topless, whether or not an accident happens, or whatever—women end up facing charges under this.”
