A man dubbed the “Swiss cheese pervert” had pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent exposure.
Pagano, of Norristown, Philadelphia, had been due to stand trial but on Thursday entered a guilty plea, Philly Mag writes.
One weird individual... Chris Pagano has pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent exposure
He also pleaded guilty to four counts harassment in a negotiated plea deal. Further charges of stalking and open lewdness were withdrawn.
The 42-year-old had faced up to 25 years in prison, but was sentenced to eight years probation, supervised by a sex offenders unit, and was ordered to stay away from his four victims.
He must also attend a treatment program, CBS Local reports.
Pagano was branded the "Swiss cheese pervert" by the Mayfair Town Watch Facebook page in January.

"He offers them money to watch him put swiss cheese on his privates. He is a white, heavy set male, 40-50 years old. He drives a newer model silver sedan.
"He was also spotted in a black newer model sedan. If you see this guy, don't confront him. Get his plate number and call 911 immediately!!! We have passed all the information to the 15th PD."
Other reports claimed the same man had been sending messages on OKCupid asking women to "perform masturbation on him with cheese".
The Philadelphia Daily News obtained what is alleged to be an excerpt from one of those messages.
"I started to compare girls to cheese due to their milky complections [sic], girls are soft, smooth feeling and tend to like dairy products more. That and typical advertising, always using a girl to advertise dairy products. So cheese is what I started to use as a replacement for having sex with girls."
Authorities have repeatedly pointed out that although the incidents may initially appear comical, it is in fact a serious offence and traumatic for those unfortunate to be approached.
