Posted: Updated:


    A man from Alabama has now pleaded guilty to obscenity for sexually taunting an unconscious LSU fan.  It happened in a Bourbon Street fast food restaurant after the BCS national title game last January.  A video of the incident went viral online.
    Prosecutors said a deal reached Tuesday morning calls for Brian H. Downing of Smith Station to be sentenced to two years in jail on two charges of obscenity.  Downing's sentencing is set for November 29th.
    The video that went viral on the Internet appeared to show someone in a University of Alabama jacket performing a simulated sex act on an unconscious man on January 9th.
   Downing had pleaded not guilty in May to charges of sexual battery and obscenity.
