Aspiring Porn Star Gets Jail Time for Public Nudity
LINCOLN, Neb. — Aspiring porn star Val Midwest was sentenced to 45 days in jail today for posing for nude pictures on the lawn of her former Catholic high school.
Midwest, who was born Valerie Dodds, told Lancaster County Judge Thomas Fox that she had nothing to say after he convicted her of public nudity and trespassing. A reporter for the Lincoln Journal Star said that Dodds smiled as a deputy cuffed her hands behind her back.
In the offending pics, taken late on May 13, Dodds is depicted with her breasts exposed outside Pius X High School’s football field, lying nude on the turf and sitting naked on a concrete bench.
Midwest reportedly engineered the shoot to get back at former classmates and staff at Pius X, who chastised her for wanting to start a porn career.
Defense attorney Chad Wythers argued to the judge that the sentence was rather harsh, given that first-time DUI offenders, who are more hazardous to the public, generally only receive a week behind bars.
Fox was recalcitrant. A spokesman for the Lincoln City’s Attroney’s Office said Dodds had no remore for her actions and “deserves jail.”
