Man fined for nakedness in Stirling University library

Someone had seen his Moby Dick

A man who was found to be parading around Stirling University’s library naked has been fined £600.

Neil Cox, a 27-year-old actuary disturbed the peaceful atmosphere of the quiet zone of the library by when he exposed himself on January 24th.

Cox was in Stirling as part of trip to climb the Cairngorms and was dared by a friend of his to be naked in a library for the duration of a song.

He then picked an area where he would be secluded from everyone in the library and filmed himself doing the act, where he sat naked in a chair with only a snood to cover his face, the video was used as evidence in court.

After his dare was complete Cox went on to look at the book shelves on the same floor where a man reported him to security.

Cox was due to be tried for allegations of indecent exposure, for which he denied, but admitted an amended charge of public indecency and was fined £600. Stirling Sheriff Court was told that the act was not sexual.
