Normally we are very much against drunk driving and everyone who does it. But a couple in Oconto County (USA) managed to flip the situation in their advantage completely. After being arrested for drunken driving in August they started having sex with each other in the backseat of a cop car as an officer was driving them to the police station. After yesterday’s court case Travis Husnik (33) and Heather Basten (29) both face serious time in jail but at least they have a great story to tell for the rest of their lives.
The real asshole in this story is obviously the deputy that didn’t even let the couple finish their act of love. He stopped the car, told Husnik to pull up his pants and sat him in the front seat. Both Husnik and Basten were charged with ‘lewd and lascivious behavior and disorderly conduct’.
During the trial County Circuit Court Judge Jay Conley asked: “What do I sentence a guy who has sex in squad car to? I’m getting to be pretty old guy and I’ve never seen that situation in my legal life. It’s not like you have a lot of law school courses or training on what do you sentence a guy who has sex in a squad car to.”
Assistant District Attorney Robert Mraz then tried to come off as anything but a pervert by saying: “This is kind of … it’s a little disgusting to have another person watching (others) engage in sexual relations the way the defendant and his female companion did.”
And judge Conley seemed to agree with him: “At a minimum, the mildest word that I can think of, the most favorable word I can think of, is your conduct is completely disrespectful to the officer, The process of being arrested is supposed to be somewhat unpleasant … and you end up having a tryst. Incredible.”
After that Conley sentenced Basten to 48 days in jail and and a total fine (court costs and DNA surcharge) of 443 dollar for the sex incident, as well as an additional fine of 793 dollar for driving under the influence of alcohol. Husnik, who had an impressive criminal record, got the maximum sentence of 90 days in jail and the same fine of 443 dollar. A bit of an uptight reaction to two people consuming their love, we would say. Didn’t this judge know that alcohol is a major aphrodisiac? And for 48 and 90 days in jail he could at least let them finish in court.
