… Southern Connecticut State University’s journalism department, and indeed, when interviewed recently by the police, Jerry Dunklee said he was “under the impression that whatever he did in the privacy of his own home was his business.”

But there’s freedom, and there’s the law. The indecency law.

A Southern Connecticut State University journalism professor has been arrested for public indecency after neighbors say he was masturbating in his window.

Jerry Dunklee has also been charged with breach of peace.

Police in New Haven were called to Front Street last week. Dunklee’s neighbor told police that she had been dealing with his “odd behavior” for four years. The neighbor says whenever she walks her dog, Dunklee would run to his window, undress and begin masturbating.

Another neighbor told police that he would often see Dunklee dancing around his house naked.

When the neighbor was walking with officers around her yard, police noticed Dunklee standing naked in the window and when he saw the police, he quickly sat down.
