A 55-year-old minister known for his bullhorn-amplified protests at an annual gay festival in the French Quarter has been convicted of obscenity for exposing himself while masturbating at a public park last year.
The Rev. Grant Storms, of Metairie, waived a jury trial and the case was heard by state District Judge Ross LaDart, who on Wednesday found Storms guilty of the single count against him. He then sentenced Storms to three years of probation, citing no evidence of a criminal history. The Times-Picayune also reports Storms was ordered to undergo a mental evaluation. Storms declined comment.
Congratulations minister — you have earned our award for Creep of the Week!
