(Newser) – LaMarcus D. Ramsey had to appear in Alabama court yesterday to enter a plea on a charge of receiving stolen property—and was found guilty of something else entirely. Authorities say Ramsey has been given a three-day jail sentence for contempt of court for wearing so-called saggy pants.

The judge told Ramsey to buy pants that fit or a belt when he gets out of jail. (Read more saggy pants stories.)
