TOWANDA, Pa. — A high school graduate was sentenced to up to two years in jail for streaking the graduation ceremony from which he had been excluded.

Russell Chmieleski , 18, pleaded guilty to first-degree indecent exposure and must serve six months to two years. Because the charge is a misdemeanor, he can stay in a county jail, rather than state prison.

He was probably guilty of having a big pecker and the judge was jealous.

The story just ran on Fox . 2 years to six months is the sentance .
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 10:55:47 PM EST
That's not a sentance...that is what the Law allows him to be sentance for by the judge.

But what is the ACTUAL sentance?

ANd this guy did this at a small town where he was not allowed to be.


Did he not think underaged kids would be there?

He said in the interview he knew kids were going to be there. Also said that he wasn't familar with the system so he's accepting whatever sentence he gets

From what I got from the TV segment ( Had it running in background ) , That is the sentance the judge gave him .

No more then 2 years , no less then 6 months . They phone interviewed the kid and
showed the video . He said he was guilty , no doubt and could be in jail as ealy as a few weeks .
But I think it's being fought by a civ libber .

streaking in front of a minor technically constitutes a sexual assault on a minor, which will get you registered as a sex offender.

Link Posted: 10/15/2004 11:43:13 PM EST
If he really is getting 6-24 months, that is absolutely ridiculous. Oh yeah, throw him in jail while the principal's daughter only gets 3 days suspension when caught blowing another student under the bleachers at a basketball game! WTF?!
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 11:46:00 PM EST
What the hell is wrong with this country?

Christ people, we had streaking back in the 70's and it wasn't a big deal. Now we put people in jail for it?

We are so fucked. We have far bigger issues to deal with than some naked jackass making a fool of himself.

Just proves that fact that the legal system is well on its way to making us all criminals, it's just a matter of WHEN they want to find something to bust you for.



For those of you too young to remember, it was such a fad back the there was a NUMBER ONE song about it.

she'd already been INcensed.

Looka dat, looka dat
(And he ain't wearin' no clothes)

Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound>

He'll be streakin' A-round invitin' public critique <"zipppp" kazoo sound>

SPOKEN: This is your Action News reporter once again and we're here at the gas
station. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?

SPOKEN: Yeah, I did. I's just in here gettin' my tawres checked 'n' he just
appeared outta the back. Come streakin' around the grease rack there-didn't have
nuthin on but a smile!! I looked at her and Ethel was gettin' 'er a cold drink. I
hollered "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL!!" But it's too late-she'd already been MOONED!!
Flashed her right there in front of the shock absorbers!!

(He ain't crude)
(Looka dat, looka dat)
(He ain't rude)
(Looka dat, looka dat)
(He's just in the mood to run in the nude)

Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound>

<sound of wire-service telegraphy>

SPOKEN: Once again, your Action News reporter in the booth at the gym covering
the disturbance at the basketball playoff. Pardon me, sir, did you see what
happened?

SPOKEN: Yeah, I did. Halftime, I's just goin' down there to get Ethel a snow cone.
Here he come, right outta the cheap seats, dribblin'. Right down the middle of the
floor. Didn't have on nothin' but his Keds! Made a hook shot and got out through
the concession stand. I hollered up at Ethel, I said "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL!!"..Too
late. She'd already gotten a free shot. Grandstand. Right there in front of the
home team.

Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound>

CLOSING: Not totally decipherable because 3 things are going on at once. Ray is
singing a verse and the backup singers are doing (Looka dat, looka dat) while Ray,
on an overlaid track is speaking <Fastest thing on two feet> "Ethel! Is that you
Ethel? < He's just as proud as he can be > What do<of his anatomy> you think

Whoa, yes they call him The Streak <"zipppp" kazoo sound>
"Ethel, where you goin'? < He likes to show off his physique> Ethel, you
shameless hussy!!" <If there's an audience to be found, he'll be streakin' A-round
invitin' public critique> Say it isn't SO, Ethel!!

That's a ridiculous sentence for streaking. Anyone who thinks that's a reasonable sentence for streaking needs to have the REAL CRIMINAL who's cell he'll be taking housed in their own home. By these standards the jails should be full of thirty day sentences for prank calls as well.

This dude gets 6-24 months but if you are caught with an illegal gun, they slap your gang-bangin wrist and let you go to fuck it up for the rest of us?

There goes his right to own a gun. Wonder if he'll still be allowed to vote?

He ought to get in trouble, but 6 montht to 2 years seems a bit excessive.

It's only a misdemeanor ..... and a non violent one at that . I know people that
have worse on thier record and still got a NY CCW .

Exposing himself to children, even if it was streaking, is still exposing. Send him off to jail for a while, that'll learn'em.

Way too harsh… here in Britain he would have got a slap on the wrist from the Judge at worst and a small fine…

He should serve 2 years. It has nothing to do with nudity it has to do with criminal tresspass and punks not respecting rules or laws.
Link Posted: 10/16/2004 12:58:35 PM EST
Does this seem a little harsh to you ?

A lot harsh to me.

I survived the streaking craze when it first started and haven't met anyone that
had there life destroyed from witnessing a "streak"

Should be more like a $500 fine and a night in the can. There are violent offenders out there that don't get nailed like this kid.

Hmmm.

He should be punished harshly, but so should violent offenders; to a greater degree than the streaker (just wanted to clarify that).

I was under the impression that if the possible sentence was one year or more, you lost your gun ownership rights, irregardless if you were actually sentenced to that year or not.

I think that's how it is in Texas. I believe you only have to be arrested for a Class C misdemeanor to lose your CHL for like 5 years.
