Munich pair exposed to massive fine for public sex
A couple who were caught in flagrante after leaving a nightclub in the Munich
district of Schwabing have been slapped with fines for €1,050 and €700 some six months later.
The pair, aged 22 and 23, were arrested by police at 3.45 am on a Sunday last October after being discovered “engaging in sexual activites with one another” on the corner of the club-filled Leopoldstraße according to the report made at the time of the arrest.
“They made their confession and were released after questioning” a police spokesperson told local daily Müncher Abendzeitung.
Now, over six months after the incident, the local court in Munich has served the
couple with a his’n’hers fine of €1,050 for him and €700 for her, set to reflect their respective incomes.
The local paper commented, “€1750 could buy a suite in a five star hotel.”
Police told reporters from the Müncher Abendzeitung that they stumbled across the incident totally at random, after seeing a crowd of spectators who had gathered to watch the action and going to investigate.
