Australian Couple Charged under Environmental Protection Act for … Noisy Sex
With the complaint that listed "screaming, loud moaning, swearing
and raised voices," Colin MacKenzie and Jessica Angel became the
first couple charged with offenses under Australia’s Environmental Protection
Act for … noisy sex:
Police patrols have been to the couple’s unit 20 times since April.
The latest callouts – last Sunday night and twice early Tuesday morning
– resulted in the couple being charged with disturbing the public peace
and hindering an environmental protection officer.
"We exceeded the noise pollution to the point we were arrested
and taken out of our own house and told we couldn’t have sex,"
a stunned Ms Angel said.
Mr MacKenzie said: "It is completely over the top. I have been
fined for having sex in my own house." [...]
"It is mostly Jessie," he said. "Our average sex goes
anywhere from four, six, seven hours, basically five nights a week.
