A woman has been arrested after she was allegedly spotted “continuously” rubbing “her vagina” outside a supermarket in front of a child.
Vanessa Lee Jones, 28, shocked shoppers at a U.S. convenience store at around 11am on Wednesday 30 September after people allegedly spotted her self satisfying herself in full view of a child.
Police claim the woman was smirking as she “continuously rubbed her vagina” in front of shoppers at the 7-Eleven in Florida.
Witnesses told cops they were shocked to see such an open display of lewdness and allege the woman continued with the act near the front doors of the convenience store.
Police arrested Jones after a member of the public called the police, the Smoking Gun reports.
Jones was allegedly observed by the child’s uncle, who "video recorded the incident" and showed it to law enforcement.
Officers then arrested Jones on the spot for lewd and lascivious exhibition.
The terms Lewd, lascivious, and indecent conduct mean being lustful, licentious (sexually unrestrained), unchaste, wicked, or sensual by the person doing an act.
Lewd and lascivious exhibition is usually a misdemeanour charge, but as a minor was present the charge is now regarded as a felony.
The 28-year-old denied engaging in any illicit behaviour, and is locked up in Florida county jail on $10,000 bond.
U.S. law states anyone 18 or older who commits a lewd or lascivious exhibition commits a second-degree felony punishable by 15 years in prison and a $10,000.00 fine.
