PRATTVILLE - 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. Twenty-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. The judge told Ramsey to buy pants that fit or a belt when he gets out of the county jail. The judge says he finds it disrespectful and a disruption when people wear pants below their waistline in his chambers.
