Sex On The Beach

JULY 21--A Florida couple was arrested last night for having sex on the beach in front of numerous individuals, including a four-year-old girl and a witness who recorded the sandy tryst with a camera phone, according to police.

Elissa Alvarez, a 20-year-old waitress, and Jose Caballero, a 39-year-old personal trainer, were each busted for felony lewd and lascivious exhibition on Cortez Beach in Bradenton. Alvarez, seen at right, and Caballero were each released from jail today after posting $7500 bond.

Cops were summoned to the beach by witness Emily Hall, who told officers that a Hispanic couple was “laying on a sheet next to her” when they “started to fondle each other.” In short order, Hall reported, the pair “started to have intercourse on the beach,” according to a probable cause affidavit.

Hall said she was “very upset” because her four-year-old daughter “witnessed the couple having sex.” Six other witnesses filed complaint affidavits describing Alvarez’s and Caballero’s explicit beach performance. In fact, “One witness filmed the couple with a camera phone to be used as evidence for this complaint,” an officer noted.

Alvarez and Caballero are scheduled for an August 8 court appearance. Caballero, seen at left, is a convicted felon who spent about eight years locked up on a cocaine trafficking conviction (he was released last year from a Florida prison).

According to her Twitter account, Alvarez is a sand enthusiast: “I think with out the beach I seriously fall into a deep depression.” In a July 7 rumination, Alvarez noted, “Intimacy is very important in a relationship and I mean true genuine intimacy not just sex.” (3 pages)
