Man is aquitted of public urination charges when prosecutor can’t produce DNA evidence it was defendant’s urine in puddle

PORTSMOUTH — Following a Tuesday trial when he called for DNA evidence from a urine puddle, a Rochester man was found not guilty of a violation-level charge of urinating in public.
Michael Huppe, 56, of 44 Forest Park Drive, was found not guilty by Judge Sawako Gardner, who offered no explanation for the verdict beyond “not guilty.” Her decision was released Wednesday.

Huppe was cited April 2 when police alleged he relieved himself in a parking lot between the Bowl-O-Rama bowling alley and an adjacent movie theater. Officer Aaron Stacy testified he saw Huppe and another man urinating next to a pair of sport utility vehicles and upon closer inspection saw “two fresh puddles of urine flowing” in his direction.

Representing himself at trial, Huppe fired a colorful line of questions at the officer including, “Did you see me take my thing out and urinate?” and “Did you test DNA to see if it was my urine?”
The officer testified he did not test DNA from the urine puddle.

“Swear on a Bible and say it was Mr. Huppe’s urine,” Huppe shouted at the officer during the June 24 trial, when the judge ordered him to “take a deep breath” and promised the verdict would be forthcoming.
