COVINGTON—Keith A. Cangiamilla, 51, of Mandeville, pled guilty Tuesday (Jan. 26) to one count of obscenity for driving naked and exposing himself during an incident last summer along the Mandeville lakefront. District Judge Allison Penzato sentenced Cangiamilla to three years in prison, which she suspended if he successfully completes five years of probation and pays a $1,000 fine.
This was Cangiamilla’s first felony conviction. He was arrested on June 30, 2015, after Mandeville police received a call about 6:30 p.m. that a naked man was sitting in his Cadillac with the door open and masturbating in public. Cangiamilla drove off, but when officers caught up with him a short time later, he was still naked.
Cangiamilla told officers that he’d stripped from his clothes because he had wet them trying to wipe water from his windshield and that he’d opened the car door to urinate. Officers found no wet clothes in his car.
Assistant District Attorneys Becky Jo Hollen and Jay Adair handled the case.
