Couple Arrested For Post-Wedding Sex In Park
Nebraska newlyweds plead guilty to lewd celebration
JULY 18--A couple who this week celebrated their wedding by having sex in public view at a Nebraska park will be spending their honeymoon in separate jail cells after they pleaded guilty yesterday to indecent exposure.
Police arrested Saint Ramirez, 23, and his bride Miaya, 31, after being summoned to the Oregon Trail Park by a trio of teenagers who reported spotting the duo having sex near “a big pine tree” around 8 PM.
When a Gering Police Department officer drove his cruiser up to the tree, he saw “Miaya had her pants off and her buttocks exposed. Miaya was moving in an up and down motion on Saint,” according to a probable cause affidavit. “Saint had his pants pulled down to approximately his ankles,” added Officer Michael Modec.
While the patrolman loudly advised them to stop, Saint and Miaya continued to have sex. The pair eventually complied and got dressed, laughing as they put their pants back on. The pair was trysting near a playground and the park swimming pool, and “numerous children” were in the immediate area, Modec reported.
Asked by the cop what they were doing, “Saint stated they were having sex and had just gotten married.”
On Monday, the couple was issued a marriage license by the Scotts Bluff County Clerk, according to records. The license has not yet been returned, so it is unclear whether the duo was hitched Monday or Tuesday, the day of their arrest.
The newlyweds, pictured in the above mug shots, were in the park with friends and family, including Miaya’s five-year-old daughter (apparently as part of an al fresco wedding reception).
After pleading guilty yesterday to public indecency, a misdemeanor, Mr. and Mrs. Ramirez were each sentenced to 30 days in jail. (3 pages)
