LONDON: An Italian couple have been jailed for three months for making love in front of a police station.
The couple succumbed to their passion right in front of a police station in the gardens of Rome’s Castel Sant’Angelo, according to The Leader newspaper.
But cops had no clues about what was happening in front of their police station. Instead, it was an elderly lady who saw the couple making love from the balcony of her home. She informed the cops about what was happening in front of their police station. When a policeman went out to verify what the old lady had just told police, he found the couple in the midst of love-making.
The man, who is 37 years old, and his girlfriend who is 39, were arrested. On Thursday, they were produced in court which sentenced them to three months in jail for “obscene acts in a public place’’.
However, the lawyer for the couple said he would appeal the sentence.
The lawyer said, “I find it incredible that they have prosecuted two lovers, when far worse crimes happen every day.’’
