U.K. couple jailed for oral sex in public while teens filmed them

By Marcus Hondro     Jun 14, 2013 in Crime
A couple in the town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire have each been given 10 weeks in jail for having sex in public. The two engaged in oral sex, the male on the female, while about 40 teenagers watched nearby.
The actions of 22-year-old Sam Rowan and his 37-year-old girlfriend, Jacqueline Holden, came at about 9:20 pm after the two had been drinking, they said, for much of the day. Their public tryst took place in May at the Barnsley Interchange, a busy train station.
A crowd of teens gathering to watch the pair and egg them on, many filming with mobile devices. “Rowan was looking around and wanted the growing crowd to know what was going on (and) they both played to the audience," prosecutor Chantel Lowery Green told the court. “Holden then lay on the floor and Rowan had oral sex with her.”
U.K. couple "horrified" they had sex in public
Felix Allen of the Sun reported that upon being arrested Ms. Holden denied she had sex in public and said she woud never have the nerve to commit a public sexual act. The lawyer for the two, Philip Howard, said both his clients were "horrified" and noted that Mr. Rowan has Asperger’s Syndrome, a condition that causes problems with his social skills.
District Judge John Foster was in no mood for leniency. “You both engaged in open sexual contact outside and inside the Interchange in front of a crowd you were encouraging," he said. “The Interchange is probably the busiest place in the town and the description of your behaviour has been absolutely disgusting.
This demands a deterrent.”
