Lewdness charges dismissed in nude model case

NEW YORK (WKOW) -- The charges of public lewdness against a model, who posed nude at a museum, have been dismissed by a New York judge.

Kathleen "K.C." Neill was arrested in August during photographer Zach Hyman's shoot in the arms and armor department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Thomas J. Hillgardner, Neill's lawyer, says she did nothing indecent while posing in an institution full of depictions of nudes. 

Hillgardner noted court rulings saying public nakedness isn't necessarily lewd.

Hyman, the photographer, calls the charges "completely absurd."
