More cushion for the pushin'!
A Wisconsin man who was caught last year having sex with a couch pleaded guilty to public lewdness Monday.
Gerard Streator, 47, was sentenced to five months in jail for the furniture fornication, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun.
He is also barred from possessing "pornography of any kind" and must pay $243 in court costs.
Streator was arrested in September 2012, when an off-duty police officer jogging in Waukesha, Wisc. noticed Streator on the side of the road, taking the term "love seat" far too literally.
The officer wrote that Streator was "thrusting his pelvic area against the cushions and trying to sexually gratify himself by rubbing his penis between the two cushions.”
Since his arrest, a presumably fake Twitter account for Streator, @ProudGunNut, has sprung up. The account, which uses Streator's mug shot as a profile picture and include the bio, "Silenced for supporting gun rights. Framed by the government for picking up a sofa when I wasn't wearing a belt."
