An aunt-nephew pair faces preliminary incest charges after being discovered in a pickup truck in a semi-state of undress Wednesday morning.
While on patrol, a Bloomington police officer came across 20-year-old Jesse Pedro, and 36-year-old Anniabell Scherill, sitting in a black GMC Sierra at about 2:20 a.m. in a parking lot on the west side of Cascades Park in Bloomington.
They are both adults. Why should they be arrested for having sex with each other? Who is the victim?
Kovach says, after questioning both admitted to having consensual sexual intercourse with one another.That should be none of a police officer's business. DON'T TELL! Do not assist with an unjust prosecution.
She told the officer her and Pedro had been at their respective places of work prior to the incident and that she was undergoing marital issues at the time.There is a chance, however remote, that her spouse knew and approved. But even if she was actually cheating, that shouldn't make it a criminal matter. This is a waste of law enforcement resources.
