GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest convicted of indecent exposure for jogging naked around a track at a Colorado high school has been sentenced to five years probation.
The Rev. Robert Whipkey must also complete 100 hours of community service and register as a sex offender under the sentence handed down Thursday in Weld County, Colorado.
Whipkey was arrested about an hour before sunrise on June 22, 2007.
The Denver archdiocese said Whipkey was placed on leave last
year. He had officiated at three parishes.
Dressed in a blue shirt and slacks, Whipkey told Judge Timothy
Kerns that the conviction has ruined his life and that he is now unemployed.
