The Rev. Grant Storms, famous for protesting New Orleans’ annual gay festival, Southern Decadence, and infamous for protesting common decency by masturbating in Lafreniere Park last year, has been convicted of obscenity and sentenced to three years probation.
The pastor had previously extolled the virtues of public penile pumping, calling it a “thrill” shortly after the arrest. Storms was also under suspicion of pedophilia as he was going at it with children nearby, but after police searched his computer and phone for child pornography, they came up…empty-handed.
Judge Ross LaDart did order Storms to be psychologically-evaluated, though, as he had masturbated three times in the same park the week of his arrest last February. So for Storms, we guess it’s safe to say that the “thrill” is gone.
