Watch couple have sex in a Domino’s pizza shop in the presence of people; they could face prison sentence
The incident occurred on February 25, 2016. It was Craig’s birthday and the couple, from Bridlington, East Yorks, had spent the weekend drinking and celebrating when they got the train to Scarborough.
Magistrate Angela Beardshall said the act was offensive because members of the public and staff of Domino’s were present while it happened.
She said: “The prosecution has not obtained this footage illegally although it may well be it was distributed improperly. In coming to our decision we do take note Mr Smith has not attended but do deem him present via his solicitor. We have watched the footage and it’s not disputed the male in the footage is Mr Smith. A great deal of the acts were lewd, obscene and disgusting.Members of staff were present and the defendants could not be sure that members of the public would not enter the premises. We view this offence as so serious that it passes the custody threshold.
“The offence was in a public place. Members of the public were present and so were staff. Members of the public should not have to put up with this disgusting behaviour.”
Both Hirst and Smith will be sentenced on October 17 at Scarborough Magistrates’ Court.
