York magistrates heard that a couple were packing up in their Mayfield Grove guest house at 5.30am on July 16 as they prepared to go home.The only surprising thing is that they themselves didn’t end up in court!
They opened the curtains and saw Nicholas Martin Scherer, 22, having sex with Adam Craig Fletcher, 29, in broad daylight in the street outside.
They called police and the two men ended up in court.
Scherer was given a community order with 12 months’ supervision and a 8pm to 6am nightly curfew for 12 weeks. Fletcher, whom the court heard has learning disabilities, was given a 12-month conditional discharge and ordered to pay £85 prosecution costs.Mitigation should be fun…
For Scherer, Harry Bayman said both men had been drinking and had taken drugs. They had met in a pub and gone on to a private party and were on their way to Fletcher’s house.Yes, that’s all it was. Two ships, passing in the night…
“In fact it was the end of their night out. For the witnesses, it was the beginning of their next day. To some extent there was a conflict of lifestyles,” said Mr Bayman.
"And saw Scherer, having sex with Fletcher, in broad daylight in the street"
Well I'll be buggered...
Sorry, couldn't resist!
...and in mitigation my client would like to point out that they checked the Doggone Yorkshire website but it may have been hacked because "right outside the Mayfield Grove Guest House" is not in fact an indication that the guests welcome this form of street theatre. Ooops.
I'd like to see Fawlty Towers cover that one!
Bucket of cold water .. job jobbed .. ;)
I like "conflict of lifestyles."
I mean, everything that someone does in contrast to what you do (homeowner/burglar, native brit/imported lunatic, politician/taxpayer) can now be summed as a "conflict of lifestyles"
Anything Depend on nature and climate.
I'm shocked...SHOCKED I TELL YOU...at the complete absence of the Gay Card.
"Sorry, couldn't resist!"
I knew someone would succumb!
"..but it may have been hacked because "right outside the Mayfield Grove Guest House" is not in fact an indication that the guests welcome this form of street theatre. "
"I'd like to see Fawlty Towers cover that one!"
Oh, me too...
"I like "conflict of lifestyles."..."
Covers a multitude of sins, doesn't it?
