CROWLEY, La. (AP) - The city of Crowley's saggy pants ordinance takes effect Friday. The ordinance, approved in August, prohibits the wearing of outer clothing sagging below the waist exposing the undergarments in public places or in public view.

Any person in violation of the ordinance will be charged with a misdemeanor and subject to penalties of not more than $200, a prison term of not less than 60 days or both, the ordinance states.

The same person convicted of a second offense is subject to a fine of not less than $100, a prison term of between 15 and 60 days, or both. Third and subsequent violations are subject to a fine of between $150 and $200, a prison term of between 30 and 60 days, or both.
