The trial of a former Penn lecturer who allegedly “inappropriately touch[ed] himself” in Houston Hall was postponed until mid-December.
Adam Bund, a former lecturer for the Department of Anthropology who was charged with indecent exposure on May 23, was scheduled to go to trial on Thursday, but the proceedings against him were postponed because the assistant district attorney on the case is currently working on another jury trial. According to court documents, Bund’s trial will now commence on Dec. 12.
In addition to indecent exposure, Bund also faces charges of open lewdness and harassment for two separate offenses that both occurred in Houston Hall. He is alleged to have committed these offenses in February and April of 2013.
Indecent exposure, the most severe charge against Bund, is the exposure of one’s genitals in any public place. In Pennsylvania, it has a maximum prison sentence of up to two years.
Open lewdness and harassment are both third-degree misdemeanors that are punishable with a fine of up to $5,000 and imprisonment of no more than 90 days.
