A recent Lodi High School graduate trying to pull a final prank by running naked through a Lodi park ended up being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The teen, who is heading off to college soon, was arrested Tuesday night after police pursued three suspected car thieves into Peterson Park.

    ok LNS I will be nice, and maybe get this posted. A) The citing officer COULD have made it maliscious mischief. B) the DA's office HAS charged other citizens the max charge instead of what is appropriate. C) my unposted comments were NOT untrue. D) my personal experience is that LPD officer WILL issue the max citation if they believe the kid has DEFIED their orders or ARGUED with them.
    We need an ombudsman and it aint the Behind The Badge column.

    You idiots still don't get it. This is the same DA's office that charged the mother of a dead child when she sued LPD for their offduty undercover running over the child. This runner won't identify his buddy and so the LPD and DA office WILL SHOW NO MERCY. Ja, you vill name names ven der poice order you ja?

    to:"to": There is a huge disparity in what you describe with these two cases. One is a case in where a 34-year-old man had sex with an underage student in his charge... the other is this case where a good kid...(his record shows it to be so)...that ran nude in the park at midnight when no one was around but his buddy, the one that dared him to do so. I think there is a HUGE difference there. If you can't see that then you have some serious issues to sort out as there is no comparison whatsoever.

Actually, then no one would return those darn carts! Guess we'd all have to get to the gym, "toot sweet"! (he, he, he!)

    Your is your and you're is you are. I don't (do not) believe Lodi Biz Owner meant, "I thought they closed down you are massage parlor."

I bet you raised a real couple of animals.

We were dip'n in the river for a night swim and walk'n the logs. We might of just left the movies where ALL parents dropped their kids. Naked, we snuck out of masons beach through yards of nice people, giggling. (Damn them wild irish boys! hehe)

    Sex offense for streaking? Then I want to see all of those illegal alien day laborers, pissing in the public street, get hit with a sex offense....This is as stupid as the school who suspended the little boy for drawing a really crumby picture of a gun with a smiley face. These libs need to stop policing anyone who is on the other side of their agenda.

    People should have all of the facts of a situation before they make judgements. Fact, Cinotti was in a vacant building where there was no damages done, to the building, that hardly sounds like Residential Robbery. Also there was nothing taken. Years ago that would of been grounds for nothing more, than a trespassing violation.

    This kid was doing what is perfectly normal for young, irresponsible, capricious, and thrill-seeking high school aged kids. Lighten up Lodi, and give this kid a break. A lifetime sentence of a registered sex-offender for something as tame as streaking at 11:30 at night when no ones around except some hoodlums and cops is absurd and an appalingly disproportionate sentence for something so frivolous.

    With true sexual preditors out there, the DA would be an absolute fool to prosecute a streaker kid and have him register as a sex offender. Am I the only one who remembers the trend of streakers at football games 30 years ago? There were frat guys streaking on my campus in college. It's a stupid prank, which deserves at the very most a fine.

    GovAgent: I agree 100%! Prewitt, a good kid, doesn't need to have his life ripped apart just because he did a harmless goofy thing at 11:30pm through a deserted park. He was obviously going on a friendly dare by his buddy and went running in his birthday suit across an empty park. If he had done this 2 minutes earlier this would never have been in the paper. It's no big deal. Make him do some community service or something and send him off to college.

    Article is not correct regarding Cinotti. He has never been charged with residential robbery, he has never been in possession of a firearm. The escape was not from jail, but when he was 18 years old, he was under house arrest and left the house. He was sited for a broken switchblade knife, and he had to appear in court for it. When the judge and the DA found out it was a broken switchblade knife they rolled their eyes, and just let him go.

    and he was just having some fun i mean theres nothing to do in lodi so we have to make are own fun around here and it was just prank. it would be pointless to have him register as a sex offender.

    I want to repeat what many others have said on the board: I sincerely hope the DA doesn't make this boy register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. The irony is people like Rep. Mark Foley, a *real* pervert, gets to check into rehab; while a young man pulling a stupid stunt i.e., running through the park in the buff at midnight has to possibly register as a sex offender.

    The perps who actually committed the crimes should be forced into bootcamp! draft these bad boys and make men out of them! also the nake kids scent is what lead the PD dog to this area, which helped catch the other perp in the same backyard. habitual criminals know how to relax so to cover up scent!

    This young man should not have any charges brought against him. We all have done something stupid or regretable. Maybe it was a dare from his friends. His record shows an excellent student. If the DA does not drop all charges, and allows this to destroy this boys life, we need to recall the DA and do everything we can to have him or her removed, and that goes for the judge!

    Reading through the comments and reflecting on the story; it occurred to me that Mr. Prewitt has **already** paid the price what with the media exposure and the resulting embarrassment for him and his family. He pulls a stupid stunt, gets busted and is front page news. His face will probably be red for quite a while.

    Except for a few morons I'm glad to see most of the bloggers here feel that Prewitt should not be convicted and having to register as a sexual predator. It's not like he tried to have sex with a 13yr old, or was exposing his junk to young school kids like most perverts. Slap his wrist, do some community service at Lodi House, and this GOOD kid will have learned a valuable lesson.

    Mr. Grafton Prewitt you are awared the Darwin award. Aren't you proud. We saw this on television this morning and I immediately told my wife, "I bet you $500 that this "kid" went to Lodi High". I know because Lodi High hates competition and supports baby behavior. It gives A's to any "student" that is warm and encourages them to remain babies for life. Mr. Prewitt, you are 18 and a man, take your medicine, no whining to teacher or mommy that you had your widdle feelings hurt.

    The whole sex offender registration law needs to be revamped. Like the guy who has had to register for the last 20 years because he had sex at 17 with his now wife of 20 years, this kid is not a real sex offender. This kid made a bad decision, but he didn't intend to harm anyone. That should be the overriding factor.

He's just going off to college and he needs to be given a second chance. He's obviously not a sex offender, just a kid that made a bad decision.

    How about interfering with police and helping a suspect get away? It seems that had this naked fellow not been out exposing himself the Lodi PD would have caught the third suspect. Lodi golf team, hun? He will likely get off with a slap on the wrist...can you imagine is this idiot has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life over a stupid decision?! OUCH!

    Grafton Prewitt was arrested on SUSPICION of prowling, but also on SUSPICION of indecent exposure? It seems to me that this prank is going to follow Grafton for the rest of his life. Congradulations Grafton. I'm sure your parents must be proud...

    P.S. My last post probably will never get posted because the News Sentinel is run by the same Lodi High good-ole-boys that run the city (per the poll on the front page of the LNS website)!

    Why is it that whenever there is a high school student running amok in the nude, that said student comes from Lodi High?

    The last two years at the Lodi-Tokay football game it was a Lodi High student that bolted from the bleachers "au natural".

    I actually had a Lodi High parent ask out loud why only Lodi High students have recently "streaked" at the annual football game.

    Is that a "badge of honor" for the Lodi High community?

    Those parents must be so proud ..... :)

    It seems that juvenile criminals who are not 18 are often released into the community unnamed and unknown. While a boy who just happens to be 18 does an innocent stunt, probably on a dare, and his name, past and future as well as possible penalties are made known. Also what about the 19 year old driver? He is not named and he has multiple convictions in his background.

    I am sure Mr. Prewett learned a lesson and if convicted and forced to register as a sex offender would be a gross injustice. There is the letter of the law and the spirit of the law.

    If he is convicted, he would have to register as a sex offender for life? For playing a little prank? Come on now, if they convict him there should be some extremely upset people in this town. That's completely ridiculous.

    In the case of Cinotti...the escape from jail charge was leaving the house while under house arrest (when he was still a teen), he didn't plan a massive breakout from prison! And the possesion of firearm charge is bogus, the Lodi PD never found a firearm (because there wasn't one). They convicted him on that WITHOUT actually having seen evidence. The residential burglary...also a trumped charge. I wish this stuff was reported accurately...

    OMG! He would have to register as a sex offender? 11:30 at night? Did anyone even see him? (Besides the officers?) If not, exactly who did he expose himself to? I think it would be shame if this young man, misquided but not a criminal, would be required to register as a sex offender. Let's hope commen sense prevails...

    Here is a prime example of "why youshould not act like an idiot"! The streaker is an idiot, probably coaxed by a dare.

    The thieves, with their extensive records, should get the book thrown at them. They are probably meth heads out "working" to support their habits.

    Hopefully they will meet a REAL special cellmate, and enjoy their incarceration!!

    Too Funny!! If the cops forgot, I hope the DA remembers that Indecent Exposure requires a sexual component. As long as Grafton Prewitt was only streaking and not masturbating that component is probably lacking. There are a string of "mere nudity" appellate cases and if that's what you have, there is no crime unless he was tresspassing or in a park after hours.. But Grafton will NEVER forget his little misadventure or the newspaper coverage his arrest got him.

    Like the article says, Prewett was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Hope the DA gives him a break and lets this thing go by not pressing charges - the kid was just blowing off some harmless steam given the time of night he chose to streak. I'd be more concerned if he did it in broad daylight when the park was full of kids; but at midnight????

    Life as a sex offender for streaking? What in the world has happened with our justice system? Hopefully the DA and the judge have some common sense and the kid has do some community service. Register as a sex offender should be reserved for actual sex offenders not for a kid acting like an idiot......

    Don't be too hard on the recent Lodi High graduate. He was only showing off his shortcomings.

    I hope they let the "runner" off with a minor punishment. His actions/intensions may offend some, however, he was not maliscious as the car thieves. Not really a smart way to leave town and I'll bet he can't wait to go.

    What a dumb A$$. Because of his stupid "prank" a guy wanted by the police, not just that night but apparently on a crime spree, got away. Nice job Mr Prewett. I hope they throw the book at you. I live in the area and it pisses me off that someone dangerous, and obviously deperate, was on the prowl while my family and I slept. Thanks stupid.
