Univ. of Florida Students Caught Having Sex at Courthouse

By Andrew Chow, Esq. on November 08, 2011 5:43 AM

A federal courthouse construction site is now a crime scene, after police nabbed two college students caught having sex on a picnic table there. Mug shots of the couple -- Jarred Dauth and Maya Manseur -- are now exposed on the internet.

The public peep show took place in Jacksonville, Fla., in the wee hours of the morning, WJAX-TV reports. That's when Dauth, 21, and Manseur, 23, drank some booze and scaled the worksite's six-foot fence.

They then mounted a picnic table and made some objectionable motions.

It didn't take long for the police to show up. Dauth tried to hightail it. He didn't get far.

Dauth and Manseur, students at the University of Florida in Gainesville, were arrested in connection with indecent exposure and trespassing. Those are first-degree misdemeanors that come with possible fines and even jail time.

If the facts hold up, the freaky couple will probably get spanked in court.

By climbing a six-foot fence before getting caught having sex, it suggests they knew they were trespassing. Had that fence not been there, however, they could have possibly argued ignorance.

As for the indecent exposure charges, prosecutors pretty much just need to prove that the couple showed their privates in public.

Reports say they did that, and more -- all while hundreds of fellow Gators fans were lamenting their football team's loss to Georgia earlier that day on a field not far from the courthouse.

Next time the pair considers an extracurricular activity like this, they may want to get a room.
