Skin Tight Jeans – Reversal Of An Absurd Court Ruling

One of the strangest news about jeans concern a 1999 court ruling that a woman wearing skin tight jeans cannot be raped or sexually molested because the removal of the garment requires her “collaboration and consent”.

The good news is that, a court in Padua held during May 2005 that “jeans cannot be compared to any type of chastity belt”. In that case, the man who was accused of molesting a 16 year old girl in skin tight jeans was sentenced for one year’s jail. The ruling was again upheld in Venice during October of the same year by the regional appeals court.
