Daredevil Sentenced to Community Service at Gay Men's Health
Crisis

A man who scaled the New York Times Building pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in New York City on Monday and was sentenced to three days of community service -- at Gay Men's Health Crisis. Last June, Alain Robert, a French daredevil who's climbed buildings around the world, used the ladder-like facade of the Times building to reach the summit in an act he hoped would raise awareness of global warming, TheNew York Times reports.

Robert was expecting to avoid community service, but he told the Times that "the good thing is I can still do it for some nonprofit organization." In addition, he must pay a fine of $250.

Robert must complete his stint at GMHC by next summer. His next climb -- a sanctioned event -- takes place next week at La Cigale Hotel in Qatar. (Advocate.com)
