BATON ROUGE -- A bill to criminalize the wearing of pants in a manner that reveals underwear or buttocks was killed today by a House committee. The debate in the Committee on the Administration of Criminal Justice failed to garner one vote in support of House Bill 103 by Rep. Rickey Hardy, D-Lafayette. The bill is dead for the session unless he can find away to tack it onto a related bill as an amendment. Hardy called the practice of wearing pants too low "disgusting, and very obscene." The bill would have called or a fine of up to $500 for a first offense as well as five eight-hour days of community service work. A second offense, Hardy said, should be published by a fine of up to $750 and 10 eight-hour days of community service. Later offenses would be punished by a fine of up to $1,000, up to six months in jail or both and 12 eight-hour days of community service.
