Naked woman facing public lewdness charges after walking into two New York stores

Shoppers at two New York stores got a shock after a naked woman calmly walked in and asked for the time.

A security camera at Curtis Lumber in Ballston Spa, N.Y., captured the moment the woman entered the store and approached two employees, the Times Union newspaper reported.

The woman -- identified by Saratoga County District Attorney James Murphy III as Barbara Lafleur, of Saratoga Springs -- then walked out after telling one employee, "Have a good day."

She then walked into a Stewart's shop nearby, before being asked to leave.

One employee told the newspaper, "The manager said, 'Ma'am, are you aware you have no clothes on?' She was kosher and cool about it, and the manager told her she needed to leave."

Murphy said Lafleur was charged with public lewdness.

In a statement, he said, "While the defendant claimed she was merely expressing her freedom to be fully liberated by walking nude into Stewart's and Curtis Lumber, this alleged conduct is actually a crime under the penal law. Surprisingly, mental health found no psychiatric issues whatsoever."

Lafleur was released pending a future court appearance in Ballston Spa and could face a maximum of 90 days in jail if convicted.
