COLORADO CITY (AP) -- A justice of the peace has ordered a self-described apostle of the Nudist Christian Church jailed for contempt of court. Janice Herr, the secretary of Colorado City Justice I. McKay Heaton, said Heaton on Wednesday found Zevs Cosmos, 37, a native of Greece, in contempt for failing to pay $435 fines Heaton had levied. Cosmos had been found guilty March 18 on several misdemeanor charges, including public indecency, for walking unclad around Colorado City in protests against the polygamist practices of most of the community's residents. Ms. Herr said Cosmos would serve a 43-day term in the Mohave County jail in Kingman unless he paid the fines. - 09/26/1989
