BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) – A couple accused of having sex on a public beach in front of families has been found guilty by a jury.
It took the Manatee County jury about 15 minutes on Monday to find 20-year-old Elissa Alvarez and 40-year-old Jose Caballero guilty of lewd and lascivious exhibition.
Video played in the courtroom showed Alvarez moving on top of Caballero in a sexual manner in broad daylight. Witnesses testified that a 3-year-old girl saw them.
Both Caballero and Alvarez will now have to register as sex offenders.
The convictions carry a maximum prison sentence of 15 years.
