for Jo C
i was with my friend looking for a place to park up.
We found what i thought was a discrete location at the back of a retail park.
the road was a dead end at the bottom and was about 1/4 mile from main road with bends so could not be seen. we parked at the bottom. we passed a man in a vehicle who was facing towards the main road, he was about 50/100 yards away.
everything was very quiet, she proceeded to give me oral. When we finnished we sat there talking. the poice turned up and said a security officer seen us on cctv
They then charged us with Outraging Public Decency I think he called it.
We denied everything
