On Thursday morning in a Philadelphia courtroom, Christopher Pagano, the so-called “Swiss Cheese Pervert” of Philadelphia, pleaded guilty to indecent exposure and harassment in a negotiated plea deal. Charges of stalking and open lewdness were withdrawn.
Pagano made international news earlier this year after allegations surfaced that he had propositioned women in his car while naked and holding Swiss cheese. We tracked him down at his home in Norristown (as seen in the photo above), and an arrest was soon to follow.
Judge James M. DeLeon sentenced Pagano to supervised probation by the sex offenders unit and ordered him to receive treatment at Philadelphia's Joseph J. Peters Institute, which focuses on sex abuse issues. He has also been ordered to stay away from his victims and to use his car only for his work and to go to church*.
Pagano's trial had been scheduled to start today.

*An earlier version of this story misinterpreted the judge's orders to mean that Pagano was ordered to go to church. He's been ordered to use his car only to go to work and to church.
