Naked-Jogging Priest Sentenced to Probation

Greeley, Colo. (AP) A Catholic Priest convicted of indecent exposure for jogging naked around a track at a high school has been sentenced to five years probation.

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 district court.

The Denver Archdiocese said Whipkey, of Frederick, was placed on leave last year. He officiated at parishes in Frederick, Mead and Erie. He was arrested about an hour before sunrise on June 22, 2007.

Dressed in a blue shirt and slacks, Whipkey told judge Timothy Kerns that the conviction has ruined his life and that he is unemployed.
