Even though Richard Troupe was naked from the waist down, his defense attorney doesn't want the jury convicting him for indecent exposure; at least, not for nudity alone.
Troupe was sentenced Monday to a year of work release, four years of sex offender probation, and 80 hours of community service, reports the Longmont Times Call.
At around 3 in the morning on January 4, 2011, Troupe drove up to a Burger King in Longmont, Colorado -- sans pants. The 52-year-old then proceeded to ask Jennifer Scott, a female employee at the drive through if she'd like to hold his "whopper."
As Troupe drove off, the 24-year-old Scott jotted down his license plate information and called the cops. The Denver Post reports police pulled over the intoxicated man two miles away.
According to the Longmont Times-Call, the real issue before the jury is what Troupe was doing with his genitals during the incident. More serious charges of 'indecent exposure while masturbating' are liable to stick if prosecutors can prove Troupe was erect in the driver's seat.
The trial is expected to end Wednesday.
