BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) A 62-year-old man who preferred to do his nighttime gardening either naked or wearing a thong was sentenced to two years’ probation for indecent exposure.
Charles Stitzer of Pleasant Gap in Centre County was found guilty of indecent exposure in December for wearing only shoes and a watch while gardening in his back yard the night of June 22.
He testified that he often sat outside naked on summer nights, and that it was too dark for anyone to see him in the town of 1,700 about eight miles north of State College. He also testified that he often mowed his lawn wearing only a thong.
Centre County Judge Charles Brown on Monday ruled that Stitzer would face jail time if he wears anything less than a thong outside.
