Convict argues he should have been allowed a haircut

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A Racine County man convicted of disorderly conduct argued unsuccessfully that he should have been allowed to get a haircut before trial.

The 2nd District Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld convictions against Keith Eggum for disorderly conduct and felony bail jumping. Eggum had argued that his constitutional right to due process was violated both because he wasn’t allowed to get a haircut and because he had “plucked out” half of his mustache and “plucked out his eyebrow” over his right eye.

Eggum argues the jury could have pre-determined his guilt by his “eccentric appearance.”

But the appeals court rejected his argument, saying Eggum didn’t provide any legal authority to back up his due process violation argument, which the court called “undeveloped.”
