Woman convicted of sex on beach sentenced to time served

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

BRADENTON, Fla. » A woman who was convicted of having sex on a Florida beach will not spend any more time in jail.

On Wednesday, a Bradenton judge sentenced 20-year-old Elissa Alvarez to time served.

She and 40-year-old Jose Caballero were found guilty May 4 of lewd and lascivious exhibition for having sex in public, including in front of a 3-year-old child.

The Bradenton Herald reports that Alvarez accepted the stat-recommended sentence during a hearing scheduled to discuss setting a sentencing date. Defense attorney Greg Hagopian said she is embarrassed by the incident.

Alvarez, who’s been in custody since May 4, was released Wednesday evening. Because she doesn’t have a criminal record, her conviction was withheld. She still must register as a sex offender unless she appeals.

Caballero will be sentenced July 6.
