Philadelphia, Jan 29 (Agencies): A man hailing from New York has been sentenced to probation for streaking at a rally for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia.

Twenty-four-year-old Juan Rodriguez of New York City was held on charges of indecent exposure, unruly conduct and open lewdness after streaking at the October rally before thousands in the city's Germantown section.

He was seeking to win a million-dollar prize offered by Internet billionaire Alki David. Rodriguez didn't get the USD 1 million.

The Philadelphia Daily News reports that a judge sentenced Rodriguez on Friday to two years' probation to be served in New York.

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