A Pittsburgh, Pa., man caught masturbating in his sport utility vehicle while driving through Lawrence was sentenced Wednesday to unsupervised probation.
John J. Sallo, 33, pleaded no contest to one count of lewd and lascivious conduct for the March 16 incident. A Lawrence woman told police she saw Sallo masturbating and smirking at her while he was stopped in traffic in his vehicle at West Sixth Street and Kasold Drive.
At the time, Sallo was passing through Lawrence on his way home from a skiing trip in Colorado, his attorney said Wednesday. He was arrested and later released on bond.
Judge Paula Martin sentenced him to one year of unsupervised probation and ordered him to undergo a psychological evaluation.
