LADY LAKE, Fla. (TND) — A senior citizen in Florida has been in jail more than three weeks, so far, after he was caught on video masturbating on his front porch, police say.

Michael Weinberg’s arrest report said it happened at least twice and was caught on camera once.

The witness called police on Feb. 24 and gave them “a sworn statement with intent to prosecute,” the next day.

According to the arrest report, “The victim stated that the defendant ‘sits on the front porch with his legs wide open, pulls his [body part] out, and starts j*****g it off.’

SEE ALSO:

“The victim explained that the defendant was seen masturbating twice, on 02/19/2024 at approximately 1:02 p.m. and again on 02/24/2024 at approximately 3:53 p.m.”

Then, the report says, “The victim provided a video which clearly shows the defendant holding his [body part] and rubbing it back and forth on the front porch.”

The report did not say how far away the witness was at the time.

Weinberg was first charged with exposure of sexual organs from lewd and lascivious exhibition, which is a second-degree felony.

Since then, documents online show Weinberg refused to make his first appearance in court.

Then, the charge was lowered to simply lewd and lascivious exhibition.

Weinberg, 72, pleaded not guilty.

His bond was set at $1,000 but he has not paid it, and remains in the Lake County Jail.
