Police have launched an investigation after a woman filmed herself performing a s.ex act on a man inside a courthouse and posted the video on Twitter. After sharing the explicit clip online the 26-year-old woman boasted that it was to get her out of trouble without revealing what kind of trouble she was in.
The 34-second video showed a s.ex act on a bench in a corridor outside a courtroom, but has been deleted from the woman’s Twitter account.
Her father told local media that he’s not ashamed of his daughter after the clip was widely shared on social media, but is disappointed by the decision she made.
The shocking incident occurred during business hours at the Duval County Courthouse in Jacksonville, Florida, and the mobile phone footage was posted online on Tuesday, News4Jax reported.
The woman wrote on Twitter: “Had so much fun at court today. Found a way to get my charges dropped…. Ssssssh don’t tell.”
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office Integrity Unit, which looks into operations of court employees, is investigating, but said no one has been charged.
A police report said the s.ex act was captured by CCTV and consisted of a man and woman engaging in what appeared to be inappropriate behaviour on the fourth floor of the courthouse.
The woman was at the courthouse for a 9am arraignment on charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, smuggling contraband into jail and violation of probation.
She was sentenced to time served, which was two days in jail, and then fined and released, Jacksonville.com reported.
Police have identified the man in the video, the report added.
