Juan Rodriguez Sentenced For Streaking At Obama Rally

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA — A New York man has been sentenced to probation for streaking at a rally for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia.

Twenty-four-year-old Juan Rodriguez of Staten Island, N.Y., was arrested on charges of indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and open lewdness after streaking at the October rally before thousands in the city's Germantown section.

He was trying to win a million-dollar prize offered by Internet billionaire Alki David. Rodriguez didn't get the $1 million.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that a judge sentenced Rodriguez on Friday to two years' probation to be served in New York.

Rodriguez says he picked Philadelphia because he thought the city would be more lenient.

Prosecutors had been seeking 3 to 23 months in jail.
