Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Crime & Punishment: Public Sex
As recently as dinner tonight the topic of conversation came up when our waiter during the midst of casual conversation told us that a couple down in Florida had been convicted of public sex on a beach in Florida and each were facing up to 15 years in prison for said lewd public sex act. The couple engaged in sex out in the open on the beach where adults and children were in full view of them and not in the water.
According to the news accounts the 40 year old male and his 20 year old girlfriend got naked and proceeded to have sex in full view of at least one 3 year old girl and several adults. Some of whom were shocked and disgusted at the scene unfolding in front of not only them but the child present.
One witness to the scene actually recorded the couple having sexual relations in full view of the public while another called the police. With all that information to digest, I ask the question. For the aforementioned crime
As a curious side note. Would it make a difference if the couple was physically fit and/attractive when factoring in your thoughts on their punishment? For example had the couple been both “unattractive and/or morbidly obese” would that have any bearing on the severity of the punishment to be levied?
Weigh in with your thoughts and votes.
