Man guilty of train sex
HEMPSTEAD, New York (Court TV) -- A 40-year-old registered nurse was found guilty last week of public lewdness for engaging in a ménage á trois with relatives on a moving Long Island Rail Road train last September.
The jury determined that Dennis Greene copulated with his sister-in-law, Francine Greene, 40, while she was performing oral sex on her husband, Lyle Greene, 41, a plumber. Dennis Greene denied his involvement in the sexual escapades, saying he slept through most of the ride.
The three were busted by LIRR cops in September after engaging in a group sex act during an early morning train ride from Manhattan. Several disgusted passengers complained to the conductor, but the Greenes carried on even after the conductor told them to stop, authorities said.
During the trial, Terrence Fitzgerald, an assistant conductor, testified he saw Francine Greene sitting between the brothers. She and Dennis Greene were partially clothed. Fitzgerald informed the conductor, Warren Beale.
The sexual shenanigans finally ended at the Merrick, Long Island, station after police boarded the train and arrested them.
Lyle and Francine Greene previously pleaded guilty to public lewdness. All three each face up to 90 days in jail when they are sentenced May 9.
DUI coordinator arrested for drunk driving
SAVANNAH, Georgia -- Brian Harrell can now give himself advice.
Harrell, a DUI coordinator in a Georgia court, resigned after being charged with drunk driving.
Police said Harrell, 24, was arrested Friday in Athens after being stopped at about 1:30 a.m. while driving without his headlights on. Tests indicated Harrell's blood-alcohol level was 0.13. The state limit is 0.08. Harrell declined to take a Breathalyzer test. He was released Friday on $1,750 bail.
Harrell, who worked for two weeks as coordinator for the Chatham County State Court's newly developed DUI program, resigned Monday. The DUI program is a pilot project intended to help offenders avoid incarceration by following a strict regimen of probation.
Police seek panty raid thieves
BELLEVUE, Washington -- Authorities want to know who stole 300 pairs of panties from Victoria's Secret. Was it someone with a fetish or black marketers looking to make an easy buck?
Police are still investigating how the thief or thieves managed to steal such a large quantity of women's panties in a variety of colors, styles and sizes from the store this past Sunday. There was no video surveillance in the store, said Bellevue police spokeswoman Marcia Harnden.
"It's very unusual. It's shoplifting to the max," Harnden said.
Police, she said, are monitoring local flea markets and online auction sites to see if the unmentionables show up.
"If I were the consumer, I'd be very leery about buying undergarments from a disreputable source," she said.
