BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — A Florida 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 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.

    Wow, usually people are let off light. Their moment of crazy raging hormones made them sex offenders. Wonder if they regret it. Think the car might have been safer. Glad the law finally punished accordingly.

    Again US shows it’s uggly face when it comes to punish ordinary people for doing the most natural of all things – love each other, not hurting anyone else. And as usual the punishment is totally out of line, more suitable for murder. How can it be that love and sex is seen as such a hineous crime that the state must crusch and destroy young young lovers life? A murderer in Sweden often gets arround 10 years in jail. In US making love on a beach gives 15… There’s something twisted and sick about US.
