S.I. Man Gets Probation For Streaking At Obama Rally
PHILADELPHIA (AP/CBSNewYork) — A Staten Island man has been sentenced to probation for streaking at a rally for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia.
Twenty-four-year-old Juan Rodriguez 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 reported a municipal judge on Friday sentenced Rodriguez to two years’ reporting probation to be served in New York.

Rodriguez says he picked Philadelphia because he thought the city would be more lenient on him.
Prosecutors had been seeking 3 to 23 months in jail.
