Jamie Lee Coutee, 19, and inmate Miguel Camille Glorioso, 20, are accused of causing a “commotion” during a July 11 rendezvous at the Rapides Parish Courthouse
The pair were caught by a court employee having sex in the stairwell on Wednesday
Authorities said a courthouse employee heard the pair around 10:20 a.m. in a fifth-floor stairwell.
The worker went to investigate and saw the pair involved in sexual intercourse, according to the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office.
“When the two saw the employee, they quickly gathered themselves and fled the area,” the sheriff’s office said.
The employee, however, recognized Glorioso as an inmate assigned to cleaning detail at the courthouse and building security was able to track him down. Glorioso was serving time on drug charges when he was arrested, according to the Town Talk.
Officers later identified his partner as Coutee, who was located and arrested around 8 p.m. in Alexandria.
Both Coutee and Glorioso were booked on obscenity charges at Rapides Parish Detention Center. Coutee was released from jail on $1,500 bond.
In the last years Glorioso records show, twice has pled guilty to possession of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to distribute, in 2016 and this year. He was placed on probation in 2016, although it later was revoked.
In April, he was sentenced to eight years in prison at hard labor. Other charges against him were dropped.
Coutee has an August pretrial date on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge, according to Rapides Parish Clerk of Court records.
