A man and woman who were caught engaging in sexual intercourse in a Louisiana courthouse stairwell are now facing charges for obscenity. First reported by WSMV, a glum-looking Miguel Glorioso (20) and a beaming Jaime Lee Coutee (19) were arraigned for their public display of affection after courthouse employees found them and called the police.
According to reports, employees “fled the area” upon hearing the “commotion” and a security detail detained Glorioso before he could escape. Coutee was later identified and booked by the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office. Miss Coutee was released on $1,500 bond and also faces a misdemeanor charge for marijuana possession from last summer.
The sexual activity occurred Wednesday morning, according to a Facebook post on Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office’s page:
At approximately 10:20 am on Wednesday, July 11th, 2018, Court Security Deputies responded to a report of criminal sexual conduct occurring in a stairwell in the Rapides Parish Courthouse.
According to witnesses, a commotion was heard in a fifth floor stairwell and when an employee went to investigate, they observed a male and a female having sex. When the two saw the employee, they quickly gathered themselves and fled the area. The employee identified the male as a trustee assigned to the cleaning of the courthouse.
Court Security located the suspect, identified as Miguel Camille Glorioso, 20 and he was brought before the witnesses for positive identification. Glorioso was positively identified, placed under arrest and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center for obscenity.
Corrections Security Investigators also responded to conduct their investigation into identifying and locating the female suspect. Through their investigation, they identified the female as Jamie Lee Coutee, 19 of Pineville. At approximately 8 pm Wednesday evening, Coutee was located in Alexandria, arrested and booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center for obscenity.
She was released a short time later on a $1,500.00 bond. Glorioso remains in jail and has also been removed from trustee status as well as the courthouse work detail.
Glorioso was already serving time for drug charges and had been working for the courthouse as a trustee. He has been removed from his duties and this second nonviolent charge will likely elongate his sentence and remain an unpleasant stain on his criminal record for years to come.
The reason for Coutee’s smile is unclear. Many suspect a variety of reasons, from sexual encounters to being high.
