Was thinking after seeing the video of the streaker at the French Open...these streakers recently all have on their backs....if a zealous prosecutor could prove prior knowledge by the casino, couldn't they be prosecuted for conspiracy?
Conspiricy of what? Indecent exposure? (nm)TJeanloz

I really don't know even what criminal act these guys might be prosecuted for? Trespass? doubtful. Public intoxication? I'd say very likely. Lewd conduct? Nope, unless there's something about dudes showing cheeks. He was in a some sort of underwear wasn't he? Evading arrest? Maybe, but arrest for what is a question.

I'm not sure it's against any law at least in the U.S. to be on the field of play in a stadium. Sure against stadium terms of use and policy for a ticketholder but I'd doubt a civil action would be brought for breach of contract. Damage would be hard to prove.

French law is unknown to me. Been a long time for anything remotely like this in the U.S. I'm probably way off. On balance to your question, I really doubt it, especially if it's a U.S. based company.

Getting rowdy can be a minor offense. I doubt conspiracy would apply to minor offenses. So what, an extra $50 fine?

French law is weird, though. I wouldn't have a clue.

French Penal Code Section 1004.78(B)(2): "Being an American."
