Naturist appeals conviction

Tauranga naturist Andrew Pointon is appealing his conviction for gardening and mowing his lawns in the nude.

Pointon was convicted of two offensive behaviour charges in May after a defended hearing.

Outside the High Court at Tauranga yesterday Pointon said he appealed because he believed he did not receive a fair hearing from the district court judge nor was he given sufficient time to prepare his defence case.

Justice Paul Heath reserved his decision.
