PRATTVILLE, Ala. - Authorities in central Alabama say a man has been given a three-day jail sentence for contempt of court for wearing so-called saggy pants.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that 20-year-old LaMarcus D. Ramsey was in Autauga County Circuit Court on Tuesday to enter a plea on a charge of receiving stolen property.

Circuit Judge John Bush told Ramsey his blue jeans were sagging too low and gave him the three-day stint, which 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.

It wasn't known Wednesday morning whether Ramsey has an attorney.
