Screw it, let them do what they want. I'll love the revolution when the peasants start to rebel.

$350 per day is what they get to keep you in the pen in Florida. $127,750/year! That is why the private prisons are getting in on the action. BTW, last I checked that was back in 2000, so it could be more today.

You made me sad because I see you think it's okay for them to give someone 15 years for having sex on a beach. You deserve whatever they do to you next.

Exellent point!

It's not hard to figure out why we have the largest prison population on the planet with more and more laws that will land you there.

Because someone is making money off it, that's why. Meanwhile everyone who complains about being taxed too much may want to know that some of that money goes to people serving 15 year prison terms for grinding each other on a beach. Money well spent.

15 years for having sex in public.....what kind of stupid is this ?.... The punishment clearly does not fit the crime,WTF man violent criminals get lesser sentencing than that.......

And for all you that say this is a suitable punishment i suspect one of these days that attitude will come back to bite you in the ass

That's the downfall of justice and freedom right there. Get a handle on this # folks.

Truth, justice, and the American way is dead. Long live the king!

Hubby thinks they should get between 10 & 12 for it, on account of 15 being too stiff a punishment in his opinion. All things considered, they deserve as much as anyone else boinking in any other public space should get. IMO, no less than 10. If you're OK with going all primitive & doing the deed where ever you see fit, then do the damn time, no matter how long it is. And if anyone thinks it's too long versus something like a sentence for murders is, then maybe you should be questioning the light sentences for murders, not screwing in public, KWIM?

The headline should read "filmed by perverted old woman" not "Grandma."

Most assuredly! Imagine the education that investing in these people in prison for BS would have done for their lives. People don't realize the money behind the beast. The War on Whatever Crime is keeping lawyers, judges, police, all well paid and if you don't have cash to pay up front you get prison time that they collect on the backside from the taxpayers.
I have seen so much in my life I could write a couple of books, but I would not make it to see them published I am sure of that fact.

IN FISCAL YEAR 2010, the Florida Department of Corrections (FLDOC) had $2.05 billion in prison expenditures. However, the state also had $29.4 million in prison-related costs outside the department’s budget. The total cost of Florida’s prisons—to incarcerate an average daily population of 101,324—was therefore $2.08 billion, of which 1.4 percent were costs outside the corrections budget.

That is about $20,553 per inmate in state prison. I was told by a local corrections officer they get $350 a day from the the state to keep them in jail awaiting trial or sentencing. So, I was incorrect extrapolating that number without verifying my fact. Which I apologize for not minding my details folks!

I've seen my share of evil in this world. It's probably why I'm so pessimistic. They are bringing back poor houses soon.

The article did not mention what kind of deal the DA was offering the couple. But it probably would have been a shorter time behind bars, maybe a fine, along with probation. Then there is the consideration that one of the 2 is a convicted felon. But beyond that, when looking at the sentencing and the Florida state law, the sentencing guidelines are very clear.

This is a problem why, exactly? There is no excuse for two adults to be having sex in public, especially in front of children. I'd like to think I could take my kids to the beach without having a live porn show taking place. The sentence is just. That people have sex in public places "all the time" isn't accurate, and even if they do regularly, it's still a crime. People rob houses all the time. People commit murder all the time. People hold up businesses all the time. People molest kids all the time. People steal cars all the time. Gee, why not make all of that legal, too?

The two should have found a private location. Using the ""none of us would be here" argument for public sex is quite lame.

Does anyone even care that not one witness nor the video taken of this couple showed them actually having sex???

It showed them gyrating with her on top. Nobody could say they saw penetration or genitalia at all. They thought they were having sex and presumed they were, but can't prove they were at all.

They couple denies they were having sex and said they were just grinding a little.

I don't believe their suits were off either. Meaning no sex. Just inappropriate affection in public.

Doesn't that mean anything???

Heck my now husband and I did the same thing in the beach when we were dating back in the 70s, I guess back then things used to be more fun.
and we were a lot younger.

Soo many memories. . .

I have to add a couple of additional points here.

1. The grandmother took video to prove the crime. She isn't a "pervert" for recording criminal activity. The two having sex get a pass, but she's condemned? Really, people?? Kudos to those that saw this, such as Nyiah.

2. If your argument is that greater crimes get lower sentences, petition for greater ones for those crimes. Don't lower the bar for others. The ens result of that is no sentence at all, for any crime.

3. The video doesn't have to show body parts to show the activity. Clearly, the jury believed the motions were consistent with having sex, and that is enough. Even if it was simulated, which I doubt, the conduct was inexcusable. Either way, they deliberately displayed lewd behavior on a public beach. One child, several children, or all adults; it doesn't matter. A public beach is the wrong place for that.

4. Calling this a "mistake" only works as related to them being stupid enough to deliberately take the actions they took. They didn't, after all, accidentally fall on one another and start grinding, because they lost control of their bodies. They CHOSE to do what they did, which was to either have sex right out in public, or to pretend to, in order to see if they could get away with it. I suspect the former. Their mistake was behaving like animals, and assuming it would be excused.

Nobody called this couples action on the beach a mistake. I said the guy made a mistake when he got got and sentenced for 8 years for a coc aine charge. Just to be perfectly clear.

The area is full of lovely beaches, Anna Maria Island itself, just down the road (literal road) has a gorgeous public beach that I've been to who knows how many times. This s*** is nothing I want to see on the sand. Nothing anyone wants to see out on the beach. for that matter. We're not talking one of the area topless beaches, we're talking something entirely different & something no one wants to see without prior knowledge.

Speak for yourself. I don't have such a huge problem with two adults showing public affection, love and engaging in one of the most natural acts of human nature that I'd want their lives ruined and tossed in prison for 15 years. That's asinine. Don't push your ludicrously uptight views on everyone else.

Would I want to see it? Probably not, but there's a lot of **** I would prefer not to see. I don't like seeing 250lb women squeezing into size 6 leggings with half their butt hanging out. I prefer not seeing guys scratching their junk in public as well. But guess what? I get on with life. I look the other way.

People such as yourself and an increasing percentage of our weak-minded society is losing their ability to cope. See something you seem offensive and instead of being mentally strong enough to simply look the other freakin way, you want the hammer brought down on those you've deemed to have violated your world views. This type of stuff happens all over the world, dry humping on a beach. Your greater concern should be why the rest of the world can handle it seemingly far better than you can, or would.

A three year old seeing this won't set back his childhood development for years or ruin his life. He likely won't remember it next week. I walked in on my parents a few times as a child. Didn't effect me. Actually, it's a positive and deemed a positive in a certain sense elsewhere to see two human beings who love one another and aren't afraid to show it. But here in America, makes people uncomfortable while there's violence all over our streets and all over our televisions.

It was inappropiate. Fine them. Let them know that's not the place to engage in such acts. But pretending like it's going to do such harm to anyone who witnessed, child or not, that their lives should be ruined is an hysterical and frankly despicable response. It's selfish beyond belief. That you lack coping mechanisms to the extent you want other people's lives turned on their head is just sad commentary. In life, you've just got to grow some thick skin and learn to get on with things you might not like.

Maybe you're jealous someone else was getting affection you don't or can't. You comes across as someone with a huge hole in their life and can't understand love or passion.
