The raw-food restaurant owner who was photographed pleasuring himself on a subway car last August pleaded guilty to public lewdness charges. Dan Hoyt, who was arrested in 1994 for public lewdness, will get two years of probation and must see a psychiatrist once a week. His laywer says that Hoyt is remorseful for his actions and realizes he has a problem (no kidding!), also adding that Hoyt is consulting in Japan about healthy foods (additional sympathy plea). Gothamist supposes probation is an appropriate sentence, but what we're more upset about is how so many people do disgusting things on the train and they aren't punished - where's the police handing out summons for those things?
